Been looking for something a little bit along the vein of Americana lately, something with a story to tell. This tune I stumbled across from Cleveland’s Great Father is perfect, not to mention a pretty great song in and of itself. There’s this lush blend of guitar sounds, both strummed and sliding, mixed around the soft-spoken voice of singer Brandon Stevens; I hear a little bit of Tweedy in his delivery. They’ll be releasing their album Bicentennial Blue via Exit Stencil Recordings in September, but I wanted you to get acquainted with them now should you need the perfect tune to enjoy on your summer road trip.
