Dylan LeBlanc has a new one out on Matador - his second and that would be "Cast The Same Old Shadow." It's slo mo and languid sad songs by a young twentysomething who has no business being this depressed. He is a southerner, so maybe the general election didn't work out as planned or else he just watched Ken Burns' "The Civil War," or most likely, Miss Take did the usual on a tender heart. "Chesapeake Lane" is probably the best one here as this one just misses being something special. Then again, LeBlanc is only 22, sort of a redneck Neil Young will fewer guitars and life will get worse.
