Brothers Osborne returns with their sophomore album Port St Joe today and it is an absolute beauty. A sublime collection of finely crafted songs to whet the appetite, and get your groove on! It would be unfair to just say this is a Country album; it is rich in Classic Rock roots with huge sing along Pop-Rock chorus that are easy on the ear. The guys stepped out of their comfort zones to write an album to follow up a highly successful debut Pawn Shop, in doing so Port Saint Joeflows like a river, all ten tracks seamlessly carry you on a sonic journey through the hearts and minds of Brothers Osborne and embrace you all the way.
Whilst it may be unfair to simply call this a Country album, it is everything a great contemporary album should be. Steeped in lyrical quality, the song writing envelopes you as every memorable Country album does. There’s a swagger within these ten tracks that reminds you of the likes of The Cadillac Three, a gritty backbone and technical flare that just oozes class. Songs like ‘Shoot Me Straight’ just make you grin ear to ear.
Building in their already impressive resume, the boys won Vocal Duo Of The Year and Music Video Of The Year for ‘It Ain’t My Fault’ at the recent ACM awards and with a UK tour dovetailing this fine release you can catch them in the flesh to understand why.
As fine an album, as you’ll hear all year, Port St Joe is available from April 20th via Snakefarm Records.
