Country the way it should be done

Artist: Georgiana Starlington
Title: Hard Grave 7"
Label: Army of Bad Luck
Release date: 2009
Release number: ABL 012
Vinyl color: Gold

While Jack Hines' former bandmates will have a gospel album with King Khan hitting the streets this fall, the ex-Black Lip and former Atlantan Julie Elledge have already teamed to release a county and western single produced by Khan at Moon Studios.

The title track is a nod to the early country music sung beautifully by Elledge. That's right, this is not alt- or pop- or anything else with a hyphen country. This is honest, from the soul country and western music, and if your mind is open to this type of music you'll likely dig this band.

The second track, "Comin' Down", is a mellow song fronted by Hines, with Elledge providing backup vocals.

B-side opener "Ode to Love" is a cover played in a spaghetti western style. The only thing that would have made this better would have been if Marco Pirroni had shown up at Moon Studios with his guitar.

"Cowboy Lullaby" closes this release, and this instrumental track sounds like, well, a lullaby ready to whisk its listeners off to sleep.
