Time And Water

Jump to “More items of this artist”

Im Jahre 2003 war dieses wunderbare Album erschienen und klingt auch heute noch so frisch und unverbraucht wie vor 5 Jahren. Kopf/Songwriter/Sänger Eric Brace hat eine einschmeichelnde etwas an Todd Thibaud erinnernde Stimme, die den Zuhörer unweigerlich in den Bann zieht. Dazu kommen die Songs, die das Genre des Alt.Country/Americana/Country Rock auf das Feinste wiedergeben. Das geht im Stil der Mavericks bis hin zu der Nitty Gritty Dirt Band und lässt so manche Sorgen vergessen (zumindest so lange, wie dieses Album läuft). Die perfekte Platte für einen Winterabend am heimischen (offenen) Kamin.

Eric Brace must really love his band, Last Train Home, having in 2002 left a cushy job as nightlife columnist at The Washington Post to go on the road full-time. Time and Water demonstrates his choice may not have been all that difficult. Good, and occasionally great songs, played expertly by an ever-expanding band (eight members including harp, horns, and pedal steel at last count) beg comparisons to the Mavericks and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band — both bands tended to aim higher than what their membership was comfortable with. And as big as Last Train Home is, it only stands to reason that these varied players bring in many different genres as well. R&B influences the group on brother Alan Brace's "He's the Kind" and the Latin/mambo instrumental "Las Lagrimas del Pollo Rico" showcases Kevin Cordt's trumpet. If Brace isn't careful, however, even inspired melodies and homey lyrics won't save him if Last Train Home tries to be bigger than a decent country band should. Play what you know and play it well, then you can forget about the day job.
