At least, it is for me. I've felt that I've been moving towards more mellow stuff, but Cotton has shattered that sense of calm.
"Lost" is an exuberant, punk-influenced country rock song and The Silver Thread only improves from there. Singer-songwriter J. Han displays a wide breadth -- some of these songs could be classic folk songs. Others, like the emphatically NSFW crooner "Sucker Punch" play with and shatter your expectations. This is exactly the kind of music I was searching for when I started this blog. You can download all of Cotton's music for free, but I think he deserves some of your hard-earned dinero.
