The Resonant Rogues (from the album The Resonant Rogues available as a self-release) (by Bryant Liggett)
Heartache can fun! At least it can be when there’s a handful of heartbreak tunes involved, as they are in the latest from The Resonant Rogues. Stripped down, uncomplicated and delivered in a sparse package doesn’t mean The Resonant Rogues release lacks depth, it means there’s a sparseness to the tunes, void of unnecessary excess and studio gimmickry. You get music, you get lyrics, both that hit to your core. This is Roots music that comes via Blues, Country, and Soul, served up with a laid-back, front-porch vibe.
There’s the dreamy opener in “Sun in Winter” where The Resonant Rogues start the song cycle with a cut worthy of a slow-dance. They follow that with the thinking-person road tune in “93,500 Miles” where they ask ‘I’ve got 99 questions and two bad directions, how the hell am I gonna get home?’. It’s a cut with a fun accordion giving the cut a big-easy vibe. “Leave the Path” has that Country, click-clack train rhythm, “Show Me” like the opener is a crying in your beer (cue the heartache) song that wouldn’t be out of place coming from an old-school soul band.
“Tell the Mailman” and “Reset my Heart” are not outright drinking songs, but they both convey a vibe that would score your late-night at the bar, and the closer in “What Happened to that Feeling” is a slow and sad closer, a perfect ending to a record that lyrically is all about emotion. The Resonant Rogues is twangy harmonies backed by telecasters and banjos, that aforementioned ‘front-porch’ a perfect setting for these songs. (by Bryant Liggett)
