A hearty mixture of nation, jazz, and indie rock, ‘Unproud Warrior’ stretches out every guitar traces and vocal cue to its most size. This sort of unhurried casualness isn’t only a McCombs signature: it’s a serious a part of his attraction. Whether or not it’s zoned out stoner knowledge or a very touching second of readability, McCombs all the time toes the road between emotional readability and wry obliqueness.
The brand new observe options contributions from two distinctive musical figures: Charlie Burnham, the eclectic genre-bending violinist who supplies the stirring high-end string components, and Wynonna Judd, the nation crooner who harmonises with McCombs’ distinctive drawl.
‘Unproud Warrior’ might be excellent for true believers of McCombs’ music, however for the remainder of us, it would simply be a bit too shapeless to really hit with most affect.
