I Am the Morning is a series of meditations on mortality, life on the road, and lost love. So...your usual alt-country subject matter, but the Quiet Hollers gets it right every time. Not too shabby for a debut album.
You'd never believe that these gents started out playing hardcore punk. While they are part of a growing tradition of punk rockers moving to roots music, these are not guys playing punk with acoustic guitars. What remains from their hardcore days is their ethos: frank and emotionally searing songs.
When I thanked lead singer Shadwick Wilde for calling my attention to his band, I called the album "gorgeous." He said I was being "generous." I'll let you decide.
