DOUG PAISLEY - S/T

I love to hear records that are simple (I find them harder to make than prog records), and Doug Paisley (also of Dark Hand And Lamplight and Live Country Music) has made one of the most ear-pleasing, first-listen-simple records I have heard in a long time. Album opener "What About Us" is so strong, one would think it's a cover--it blew my mind that this song had never been written 'til now. The British press, particularly MOJO, know his genius, and the Americans (first and foremost, No Quarter, who have released this solo debut) are catching on, so what's up, Canada? Locally brewed for Grade-A export.
