Lyrics of Note:
It’s a unique set of circumstance
Once a stranger and now a friend
I only know the miles and the chances
I always wondered where the sunset ends
In listening to the latest offering from Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors, it’s easy to take the title at face value and transfer the concept of what a souvenir is back on the listener. For those who follow Holcomb and have embraced his career, new music from the Tennessee-native is, in fact, a souvenir. It’s your gift for taking the journey and it’s a hell of a lot more rewarding than any tourist trap kitsch.
Compelling in every nook and cranny, “Souvenir” is driving a flag into the “Best of 2017” ground, challenging any and all other artists that will follow. An album built for vinyl because there is no song worth skipping, Holcomb has done the musical version of a political tagline and made Americana great again.
Add this album to your collection, because if you do, it will become THE album of your present and one you carry well into the future.
