Balls by The Broken Family Band

From the rolling hills. sleazy saloon bars,
and cactus spotted desert plains of, erm, Cambridge, come The Broken Family Band, a C&W proposition as tasty as the Flying Burrito Brothers were 30 years ago, but as British as a cuppa with seven sugars. Not that you'd guess, as their sound is straight outta Nashville, a whiskey sodden, heartfelt trudge through the classic country topics of booze. drugs and damn women. The dreamy romance of ‘I See How You Are’ wouldn't seem out of place on the Brokeback Mountain soundtrack and their joyous cover of Leonard Cohen's ‘Diamonds in The Min’ is sheer hillbilly perfection. Yee. and indeed, ha.
