zoe muth and the lost high rollers "before the night is gone"

Posted by gregor on Sunday, January 29th, 2012

i really, really hate when this happens. an artist i really dig releases a record, and i am none the wiser. in this case its zoe muth and the lost high rollers’ starlight hotel which was released all the way back in april of 2011. seriously? how did this fly under my radar? some pr person isnt doin their job! or maybe im just not up on the music blogosphere? either way, im into listen number 3, and this could have easily been in my top 14 of 2011. so, so great.

i absolutely adore her voice and lyrical combo. she’s like a chick, woman – im sorry, that could be your best drinking buddy. always giving ya the real deal, no bullshit. you want the truth, look no further than zoe muth and this is why, lyrically, this is one of the better records i have heard in a year or two. i could talk about zoe all day, but her band is top notch and a perfect compliment for what she’s delivering. the album is filled with pedal steel, horns, dobro, some lovely backing haromonies, mandolin, etc. all the shit that i eat up like el famous burrito’s 3 taco diner plate. so highly recommended!

      sometimes its hard to put into words what an artists body of work means to you. most of the times you read reviews and its purely methodical. there’s no heart, no past history, just what they’re hearing now. sometimes music is a puzzle, and it doesnt make sense, until you put it all together. thats […]
