Describing themselves as “Queer country trailblazers” tells the new listener everything they need to know about this interesting four-piece, except perhaps the most important thing which is what’s the music like beyond just ‘country’? The answer on the strength of this album is pretty good, and what’s more perhaps should not be shackled by a musical label such as country let alone one based on sexuality.

Songs such as ‘The Price of the Ticket’ have potential beyond the trope despite the ever-present lap steel with the glorious harmonies and affecting sway. Good stuff indeed.
