...Only Truth Tonight

The Urbane Cowboys


The (mostly) Tampa-based Urbane Cowboys have spent the past five years making the kind of American music that speaks to fans of Willie, Waylon and The Ramones. On the Cowboys' new LP ...Only Truth Tonight, listeners are treated to a collection of sincere, lovesick laments. The sonic structure is standard rock 'n' roll goosed with twangy guitar solos and the occasional pedal steel sweetness of Jim McNealon. Michael Snayd and Kamran Mir deliver warm vocals, and the lyrics provide telling observations, including the gem "30 Days," a moving evocation of beautiful despair. 3 stars
