Awesome band. I'm a fan of their earlier stuff. Ben Nichols is one of the best songwriters out there.
Agree. Didn't really like the last 2 albums. But that usually happens to bands... Ben really is a great songwriter and one of the most unappreciated people in music, imo.
It's interesting how most guys write their best stuff when they're young.
Hold Me Close was written when he was 19...
Have you seen the movie his brother directed, Shotgun Stories?
It's basically an 1:30 long music video to Decoration Day (DBTs) but it is a very good melancholy movie.
