CD review: No Justice “America's Son”
Don't be alarmed if some of the tracks sound familiar. The album features two songs that Rice penned with Texas country singer-songwriter Casey Donahew, who included them on his band's 2011 record “Double-Wide Dream.” Folks who think red dirt and Texas country is all the same might change their minds after comparing the divergent interpretations of the two songs. The Stillwater group brings a distinctly rootsier and less polished sound to its versions.
No Justice also revisits a couple of its popular songs on “American's Son,” which features an extended and more plaintive reading of its Texas country radio hit “Red Dress.” The song sets up the album's first single, the raucous come-on “A Shot in the Dark,' which recently reached the top 10 on the Texas Music Chart.
To close the album, the fan favorite “Don't Walk Away” gets made over into a pleading piano duet, courtesy the angel-voiced Rebecca Lynn Howard.
No Justice will play an Oklahoma City show Jan. 25 at the Wormy Dog Saloon. For tickets and information, go to www.wormydog.com.
