Strip Club - Cold Comfort Review
by Gary Schwind
This album begins with a song called "Outa Sight." This is a pretty interesting tune. It begins with some psychedelic guitar and also incorporates some fiddle and vocals similar to Leonard Cohen. It's a good example of all the different influences incorporated by this band.
Strips Club's songs range from the poppy "Don't Blame it on the Rain" to the Bakersfield sound of "Cold Comfort" to "Good Things Will Come," which reminds me of Joy Division. The term the band uses to describe itself is "alt-Americana." Most of that Americana sound is found in the middle of the album. "And So Am I" and "The Final Hour" are other good examples of the Bakersfield sound.
This is a solid effort from Strip Club. The songs are rich, well-written and easy to listen to. Also, I could easily recommend this album to fans of Leonard Cohen, Flying Burrito Brothers and Joy Division. There aren't many bands that would appeal equally to those three groups of fans.
