Drinking and intoxicated love saturate a raucous Country Rock album with Brothers Osborne’s Port Saint Joe.
Who’s ready to have a good damn time? The perfectly balanced Country Rock album Port Saint Joe will be there for you - expert instrumentation and all, opening with a big harmonizing opener “Slow Your Roll”, which successfully marries danceable groove with banjo twang tradition. Brothers Osborne excels in this territory – hard on rock and light on pop (though the latter style is there on a track or two). Thrown in with this solid rock experience is a few super lyrical, meditative ballads which clue you into the fact that this band has both Country Pop and Country Rock’s conventions in mind, as they croon and strum with steel-sliding romanticism. And if you like to tie-one on, you have found your musical drinking companion.
