Track of the week from Kid Slang

Kid Slang have done the full Gram Parsons. They have released their 3rd EP called "Outlaw Kid", written and recorded in Southwest Colorado earlier in the summer during quarantine. They decamped from Chicago and headed for the hills, to a 43 acre ranch outside of Telluride where they camped for a few weeks and set up a little studio. Their take on outlaw country was written and recorded on a booze-soaked trip inspired by the landscape of the wild west. It's still 100% Kid Slang, it's their first EP with actual vocals and it sounds great. You can almost hear the crackling of the camp fire as they channel Neil Young through their urban lo-fi sound.
