Baltimore-based alt country act Television Hill
have put out a really diverse record with Twilight, one that
occupies all means of mood and atmosphere yet retains a delicious
country angle throughout. I really like the bluesy country feel
of "Mulberry Bush," and the communal folk sound present on "Bamako
Express." The wonderful twilight-y atmosphere of "Hostage Honey"
makes it one of the strongest compositions on here, though the rocked
out rendition of traditional piece "John the Revelator" - exemplary of
the variety on this album - is also particularly strong. Some of
the music is a bit bland and drawn-out (why is "The King's Assassin"
eight minutes long?), but as far as alt country goes this is pretty
solid. Worthy of note.
