Fiddle, steel, cheating, drinking, redemption, sawdust and broken promises filter in and out of their songs and stories like rainfall off a tin roof. Among the Texas and Red Dirt bands, they are unique in that theyΓÇÖve managed to neither go the country rock route or the lowest common denominator country route. They just make good olΓÇÖ honky-tonk country music, but donΓÇÖt forget how to cook it up to a fever pitch when need be. BolandΓÇÖs latest effort is Rancho Alto, an eleven-track collection of vintage Boland. BolandΓÇÖs always been a strong lyricist with a knack for making the mundane seem spiritual and the mystical seem realistic and this album is no different. After the first couple passes through, the song I kept returning to was ΓÇ£Every Moment IΓÇÖm GoneΓÇ¥. ItΓÇÖs a waltz, which you definitely donΓÇÖt see very often anymore and it tracks the lonesome balance troubadours attempt between the highways and home. ΓÇ£Pushing LuckΓÇ¥ is another standout which finds Boland at his honky-tonk rocking best as he spouts attitude at the things he doesnΓÇÖt agree with. ΓÇ£FencesΓÇ¥ finds Boland at his vocal best, fully recovered from his throat troubles of 2008 and sounding stronger than ever. Those are the tracks that stand out the most to me, but I guarantee you I could listen to this record two more times today and hear something else that grabs my attention and thatΓÇÖs part of BolandΓÇÖs genius. Rancho Alto is another in a consistent line of great records that Jason Boland and the Stragglers have made dating back to their Pearl Snaps debut. You know what youΓÇÖre going to get with a Boland record and thatΓÇÖs comforting. HeΓÇÖs a country music virtuoso, heΓÇÖs outlived his demons and weΓÇÖre lucky to be living with him through his prime.
