Ben Roi Herring, Collin’s dad, plays lush pedal steel throughout the album, enhancing the sad and desperate feel of the record.
The finest moment comes on "Lazy Wind," a tale of a one night stand that is embellished with haunting violin from Eleanor Whitmore and big banging kettle drums that give the song a cinematic feel. The song fades out with quavering organ that segues into an instrumental track, "Headliner."
Fans of Ryan Adam’s country work should especially enjoy this release.
The Other Side of Kindness is currently available.
