The US folk-rock band The Contenders released the LP Laughing With the Reckless on the 3rd.
Merging Americana, country and protest folk in to the saucepan The Contenders are able to create music which has a wistful, though ultimately optimistic visage, that is highlighted by vocal harmonies and intricate, low-key, instrumentation, giving the sense of a timeless durability.
The sixth of the nine tracks – Save A Place At The Table being my pick of the release.
Laughing With the Reckless – The Contenders is available on iTunes.*
