  Playing With the Light
Artist; Brindley Brothers 
Label; Paste
Length:9 tracks/33:57
 
There’s nothing quite like modern day country-folk blues-rock to invigorate the soul! I mean, the likes of Gene Clark, Gram Parsons, Neil Young, Steve Earle, Tom Petty, Uncle Tupelo, Wilco, Jayhawks have blazed the trail, and I’m glad to report that the Brindley Brothers seem bent on walking down that same narrow path.

You’d never mistake Playing With the Light for new country and western as the brothers infuse their bare-boned twang with dependable doses of rock classicism. Loads of heart in righteous tunes like "The Crazy One," "Slow Burn," and "Evergreen" dispel the myth that country blues has to be monotonous. One of the standout efforts of 2004.
