Song of the Week: Bitter, Drunk and Cold
Our friends, The Far West, have just released their first video. It's the lead single from their self titled debut album called, "Bitter Drunk and Cold." This song evokes the early sixties Bakersfield sound of country's golden age. The steel guitar work really shines in this song and Lee Briante's voice is perfectly suited for this "me against the world" lament. The video was shot as an homage to early sixties variety shows like The Johnny Cash Show and The Porter Wagoner Show. Lee and bassist Rob Black give a nifty behind the scenes interview about the video on the site No Depression. Although the song is called "Bitter, Drunk and Cold" it will leave you feeling happy, warm and well, the rest is up to you.
