Welcome to this second edition of Quick Takes, where we at Around The Country quickly give you a reason to give an album a listen in 200 words or less.
Alright folks, break out your favorite beverage and block out 40 minutes of your day…because this album is a good one.
If there is one defining trait of this album, it’s the careful craftmanship of each song. With the first song “By Our Design”, one can really get a taste of the sound of this album from a sonic standpoint. The haunting strings that start right on the downbeat give this album a theme of space and nostalgia. Each song on this album could be a title track, something that I find rare in other albums.
My favorite song off of Desert Dove has to be “Two Fools”. It’s a no-frills classic country song dripping in pedal steel that revolves around a complicated relationship. It doesn’t get more country than that.
Give Desert Dove a listen, and get lost in the space & vibes that make this album so special.
