#39;s there in the gently strummed mandolin that floats in on Southern Rain, the deft finger picking on the title track, the sighing pedal steel that glides through This Time and the slapback echo and crackling guitar lines that make I Can Burn Alone sound like it could have been cut at Sun Studios. More importantly, it provides the threads that run through Hearts That Strain that make it feel like more than the sum of its parts. Rather than be an album to dip in and out of, its an organic whole that from the moment you press play you have to see it out to the final note.I just like putting out records, reflect Bugg with characteristic understatement. I like making albums, I like listening to albums. If you listen to a lot of those classic records throughout each track you can tell that its recorded in the same place. Its nice to have that consistency. It seems reports of the albums death have been greatly exaggerated.
