James Low & The Western Front 12/11/2012

Owlsworld Presents James Low & The Western Front
Portland USA

The James Low Western Front is a fearsome four-piece band from Portland, Oregon, playing American Roots / Alt Country music with a distinct outsider-country vision.

“Cheerful? Not so much. Beautifully wrought and desperately heartbreaking? Yes, and yes, thanks to Low’s steady voice on wearily resigned lyrics, over dusty, Western-style accompaniment from the rest of the band.”
Listen, Dammit

“Low moves his earlier debt to the likes of Townes Van Zandt along the road to Gram Parsons, whose “white man’s soul” ring-fences his band’s groove-filled and shuffling country rock.”
Q Magazine

“One fine piece of work, musically and lyrically. The title track, Whiskey Farmer, evokes Steinbeck like visions of the dust bowl Great Depression, like something out of The Grapes of Wrath.” 
Jersey Joe, Amazon Review
