I love the laidback, lilting melodic sway of this slice of mellow honky tonk flavoured country-folk from Ozark Mountains group Pawns or Kings. The song has a touch of Townes and Blaze Foley about it too. Above all it’s the sweet vocal hooks of ‘No Way Home…’ that work their way deep into your short term memory.
They’ve release a few other things – including two full length albums that explore more of an indie folk and progressive folk sound. Great to see the range of styles the group, based around Edward Stengel and Benjamin Bigelow, are creating.
