MYRICK/PEACOCK

Myrick/Peacock

2011-11-05

Americana songwriters Alice Peacock and Danny Myrick team up for a folk-country-rock set that sounds like early Steve Earle instrumentation (e.g. "Great Big Love" and "Isn't It Amazing") and Buddy and Julie Miller trading verses and harmonies (e.g. "Right On Time"). There's a fresh energy to the collaboration and the stories of love amid the ruins of our crazy world today are great for the car radio. The tunes are mostly rockers, with just a couple of soft-side pieces, including the gospel closer "In All Things." These two have a natural affinity for one another, lyrically and harmonically. I'm not sure if this is a new duo/group or simply a side project for them, but the results are pleasing. 11/11 Michael J. F-Rock (duo)
