Blackpink: I don't hate this, but I'm not in love with it either. I can see why somebody would like this. It seems like a high-end version of a lot of the sh*tty modern pop music, which is a backhanded compliment.

Nurnberg: I don't know what's being said, so it actually kinda helps me just vibe. There's a nice vibe here too. I enjoy good post-punk sounds, this has some nice post-punk sounds. It's no Joy Division, but it got my head bobbing.

Courtney Marie Andrews: I love her voice, it's distinct, and it's perfect for this material.

Lee Roy Parnell: This has some of that 80s/90s country production that I don't really love, but is miles and miles and miles better than snaptracks. I don't really know much about Lee Roy Parnell, but I love that jacket he's wearing. I had forgotten about those, but I'm pretty sure my dad had a jacket that had some southwestern patterns like that. I am digging this song. Parnell's voice isn't Keith Whitley levels, but he's got capable pipes. I ended up not paying too close attention to the lyrics, but it sounds like we have an interesting, extended rock metaphor or several rock metaphors or something. I'm into that.

Parkway Drive: I can't really take this too seriously, so I'll just say that it looks like they are having a good time, and I am happy for them for that.

Cat's nom: F*ck yes. What the f*ck is this? I'm very into that double bass. Kjellvander's vocals sound like a lot of country dudes who do that type of singing well, but the instrumentation in this song is a lot more interesting than a lot of country ballads. I mean, this isn't really country, but he's singing like it is. I don't know, this is just kind of blowing my mind right now. @cat_sidhe did you nominate this one for me, or was this just a beautiful coincidence?

Steel Blossoms: If we count cat's nom, we have four good ass country songs in this round, and I can't be happier about it. These girls with the steel and some bite in their lyrics. I can get behind this.



Warren certainly has a country inflection to her voice, however. I'll be curious to see where she falls on the spectrum for @honeykid, since he dislikes country but appreciates ladies who rock.
As I wasn't around to play the last round (sorry about that, my neck got bad for a couple of days) I didn't hear the songs, but as Captain wondered, I thought I'd take a listen.

It reminds me of something but I'm not quite sure what. I quite liked it though. A little too country and not quite enough rock to really go with it on a first listen and I can't say I feel much desire for a second, but it's not because I didn't like it.

Just for you people....

And Captain Spaulding too, based on the kinds of things you guys have previously nominated. That album is amazing. Tonbruket is one of my alltime fav bands and Christian Kjellvander is one of Mr Cat's alltime favourites so when they brought out an album together last year, it was like a gift. Tonbruket is an odd band to classify, they're instrumental and very interesting. They basically came from the ashes of Swedish jazz band E.S.T. (Esbjörn Svensson Trio), which broke up after death of Esbjörn Svensson. Christian Kjellvander is also awesome...I think you'd like all of his stuff, Check out his other solo stuff as well as Loosegoats (his band). He always has that country influence without being actual country. Doom Country actually sounds spot on (title of this nom's album).

I was actually not sure sure song to pick as they're all gorgeous. If you have Spotify, go wild! It's all on there.
