RS Country Music Picks for Week of June 14th
Must-hear songs by Walker Hayes with Lori McKenna, Riley Clemmons, and Ottoman Turks’ Billy Law
“Billy Law, “Voicemail”
Ottoman Turks bassist Billy Law steps out on his solo debut Alone Somewhere (August 20th via State Fair Records), a collection of country weepers and introspective Americana that’s in stark contrast to the frenetic garage-rock of the Turks. Versatility is Law’s strong suit, on display even within the same song: “Voicemail” is all country steel and whiskey lyrics one minute, and indie soul-searching the next. “I won’t make the same mistake if you say yes again,” he promises by the end, a self-aware declaration of vulnerability.”
