The third release for Austin, TX alt-folk act Brandon Callies Band is the culmination of a whirlwind studio experiment in which namesake Brandon Callies tracked the Life is Still Good – EP unaccompanied before offering the balance of the material to his bandmates. The isolated nature of the recording process endorses itself throughout the final product.
Balanced thematically between darkness and light the extended-play amalgamates electric and
acoustic instruments with an experimental take on the singer-songwriter genre. Tales of pain blend effortlessly to tributes of good fortune as the veteran singer cleverly tramps the intersections of desolation and prospect.
