This is the Deadwood Saints first Full Length album and it feels like coming home. This album definitely falls under the genre of “Beard Folk” literally and figuratively, the lead singer has his own legendary beard and he plays legendary folk music. The album makes you feel like you are living in the mountains in a cabin all alone, cut off from everything and you are completely okay with it. It is so soothing to listen to; each song is better than the last. The album in its entirety is beautifully put together with flawless transitions to each song. “The Devil Keeps Track” is one of the best songs on the album, if you want a little more upbeat song ,“My Irene” is also an amazing song to listen to.

It does jump beyond its simple framework, throwing trumpet and steel drum into the mix, adding another dimension to the album as a whole. “Can’t See Me” is reminiscent of […]
