Kevn Kinney & The Golden Palominos:: a good country mile

Back in February Kevn Kinney & The Golden Palominos released a good country mile. The album marks Kinney’s first solo work since 2004’s Sun Tangled Angel Revival and the first time Anton Fier has lent out the Golden Palominos name since 1996’s Dead Inside.

A good country mile opens with an altered take on Jason Isbell’s “Never Gonna Change”, incorporating a slower draw and burn than the original done up over resonating strings and the howl of harmonica.  Down the line comes the raucous back and forth of “Got to Move on (Again)”, the more balladesque “Challenge”, and “Wild Dog Moon Pt. 2”, which evokes the phrasing and musical gesturing of Neil Young.   With that all in mind, undoubtedly, the finest and longest piece on this album is the reflective and bit more country title track.   Overall, a good country mile invites with its southern wrappings, warm recording, and song selections.  There’s also a very nice revisit upon Seven Mary Three’s “Southwestern State” for the closer, marking the album’s second best effort.
