New Barney Cortez EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Although the new EP from Barney Cortez is titled Pretty Thin, that isn’t because it lacks depth. There’s a rollicking, infectious, let-loose aspect, with melodic, alt-country, silky, soulful introspection. Crisp, composed tracks feel at home in their own skin, and adhere so that you’ll catch yourself humming them as you work through the day. It’s a diverse sampling, hitting on an array of aspects yet fitting together in a pleasant, compact package. (Photo by Michael Zallie)
