I don’t really writer proper reviews anymore, but if I did, this one would get all five hearts. Singer-songwriter John Moreland from Oklahoma has created something rather special. In The Throes is just one hell of an album. This is songwriting of the highest order and a contender for the album of the year award. Springsteen comes to mind occasionally, but it’s not disturbing at all. This is no third grade singer-songwriter trying to copy everything he can from the masters. John Moreland is a true talent and with this album he claims a place among the finest current americana/country singer-songwriters. This whole thing is just so damn brilliant that I’m struggling to decide which song to feature here. Let’s go with Break My Heart Sweetly this time, but you really need to hear the whole amazing album. In The Throes was released by Last Chance Records on 11th of june.
