“Country music is one of those genres which I have long puzzled over. Maybe it’s being a Brit, but I’ve repeatedly grappled with cutting through the layers of sonic stereotypes at work. Every now and then though, I’ll come across something which helps me go a little way further into being able to enjoy the genre, something that helps me get my head around why it’s so popular. The discovery this week of Good Saints has been a wonder for me. Hailing from Lexington, Kentucky, the five-piece specialise in an engrossing blend of blues, Southern gothic and country balladeering. Their recent EP Driftwood on the Fire is a collection of mellow, slightly intoxicated country songs, layered gently with slide guitar, banjo and dual harmonies. My favourite track by far from the EP is “Texas Moan”, a lilting waltz whose opening line – “Leave out the bottle and leave on the light” – won me over instantly.”
