outfits and beards will not suffice to vie with the Coleman Brothers
from Houston, Texas.
Keepin’
It Real” is a real gem thanks to remarkable musicians and a great
production. No better name could have been found to fit the LP
atmosphere, which brings a melancholic touch tinged with lucidity.
Everything
that makes Country Music the music of freedom is here: bottle neck
glissandos, mind-blowing violin, fantastic guitar solos, superb
backing vocals, and piano sometimes.
Songs
alternate between sentimental parts, punchy lines, and jazzy things
that pull the Blue Grass string. A Song like “Uptight” could for
instance remind of the Dire Straits era (“Calling Elvis”)
encountering Steve Morse’s Dixie Dregs back in the 70’s.
Melodies
are beautifully sung and describe the constant wandering specific to
Southern Rock: the loss of a love (“Ghost Town” and the
absolutely sublime “Lonely in the Lonestar State”), missing home
(“Back On The Farm”), simple pleasures of everyday life, or the
mocking of modernity (“Online Dating”).
