“intrigued by the presence of Texas Tornados Max Baca, Flaco Jimenez, and Augie Meyers in the musical credits, Brickey and Baca certainly deliver on the Texas blues and country-tear-jerker front. Most songs feature love-stung women and lonely men, delivered in Rebecca Valadez’s vampy Texas twang. we found the simple rhyming lyrics and muddy production disappointing, even for a locally recorded debut. We do agree with Brickey’s enthusiastic letter of self-recommendation on this point: The musicians are excellent — not only Jimenez, Meyers, and Baca on their respective instruments (though Baca’s efforts at drums and bass lag), but also TONY SARACENE on slide guitar and Frenchie Burke and Bobby Flores on fiddle. Valadez adds lighthearted sass to Brickey’s sad-bastard lyrics, and we appreciate the old man’s attempts at writing from a woman’s perspective, all of which keeps this (let’s face it) vanity project afloat as fitting music to drift with into a Hill Country happy”
