Review of "Roadhouse Sun"
June 12, 2009
Ryan Bingham & The Dead Horses
COUNTRY (LOST HIGHWAY)
Everything you need to know about Bingham's
worldview is encapsulated in his rhyme of
"Tijuana" and "marijuana" in "Dylan's Hard
Rain," the second track from the hard-living
Texan's latest album. Bingham isn't an
innovator, he's a reanimator, and on
Roadhouse Sun the 28-year-old breathes new
life into alt-country cliches through the
power of his weathered croon and his stiff-
jangle arrangements. By the end, you'll
fell like you've hitched a ride from Odessa
to El Paso in the back of somebody's pickup.
