Four Star Review of The Far West's new LP, "Any Day Now" in the London Telegraph! 03/19/14

"THE five members of the Los Angeles band The Far West came together in 2010 and Any Day Now, their second album, shows what a talented group they are. The melodic and sardonic On the Road (written by New York singer and guitarist Lee Briante about Hollywood) kicks off an album which has a pleasing flow to it. Walk Light on this Poor Heart of Mine is a catchy sad song and the band get rocky on Witchita. They also do heartbreak well on Across the Bed. The band share songwriting duties (Texas mandolin player Robert Black's upbeat song The Bright Side features nifty guitar picking from Aaron Bakker) and gel well on an album produced by Colin McLean. James Williams is on keyboard and Travis Popichak on drums. The 13-song album is diverse (there is a country-swing feel to Leonard, which features guest Nic Chafee on horns) and These Arms Will Be Empty has a languid charm that typifies a very strong album. "

Chris Smither has a five star instant classic review in MOJO! 06/28/12

Perfect album from a well travelled blues singer. Ever since his first appearance, on the 60s Boston folk scene, Chris Smither hid a little from the limelight. For the sleeve of his 1970 debut, Im a Stranger Too!, the title was bill-stickered over his face. On 1971s Dont It Drag On, he sat naked in his kitchen, eyes closed to the world. Both albums blended seductively sad cosmic blues with Dylan and Stones covers, as if too much confession was bad for the soul. Then he disappeared, returning intermittently, before a run of Noughties albums steeped in time and experience. Hundred Dollar Valentine, his first LP of complete originals, is a thing of profound beauty; deep, sad, wise songs, allied to perfectly crafted arrangements, from a man whos lived long enough in darkness to address the big, heavy questions with a lightness of touch.

Dave Alvins newest song Beautiful City Cross the River will be featured on FXs critically-acclaimed series, Justified on Tuesday, February 21. 02/21/12

Dave Alvins music speaks to our show, both melodically and lyrically. We were fortunate enough to have him perform on the show last season, and it was a song that he felt spoke to our characters and the overall attitude of Justified, said Greg Sill, music supervisor for the show. He was absolutely spot on. It is a rarity to find an artist who speaks the visceral language of a character as well as Daves music does with Raylan Givens. Graham Yost (creator/executive producer), Michael Dinner (director/executive producer) and myself decided that Daves voice was that of a voice that would be playing in Raylans head. Especially when you consider the breadth of our story lines this season. The poignancy is scary, because its so real and kind of haunting, but amazingly good. We love you, Dave Alvin.
