- Invariable Heartache by Kurt Wagner & Cortney Tidwell present Kort
6/10 Dave Staff review, 14 October 2010
...and this just in, Lambchop's Kurt Wagner and singer songwriter Courtney Tidwell have linked hairy country forearms and spawned an album of emotionally epic proportions. Its called "Invariable Heartache" and I gotta tell you its the most emotive slice of alt country pie I've witnessed in about 6 minutes. Its a heavy collection of remorse, pedal steel ,despondency, boozy tales of regret and sorrow. Its a collection of cover versions from the Nashville based country label Chart Records that was a massive influence on both of the main protagonists. In fact Courtney Tidwell's Dad was a rep at the label. He was bringing home more than the bacon, he was bringing country filled songs into his household. This is an authentic country record. It's all brush drums and slowly plucked banjos and the saddest song titles ever. It's a complex sprawling piece with layer upon layer of moody Southern Discomfort. It sounds great and even a non country music fan like myself cant help but be swayed and drawn into this album of brooding melancholy. It's..just...so...bleak. There some great moments on this album and some songs are played with such downbeat mastery that it defies logic. Anyway this album is sweet and I enjoyed listening to it. This is Skipp Wankmann saying good bye and remember..keep on listening ..
