You Can't Win

You Can't Win by Dolorean
Released: Feb 2007
Label: Yep Roc Records
Someone should mix shoegazing with bluegrass to birth a sleepy and bucolic genre known as shoegrass, replete with monikers like the Jesus And Mary Chapin Carpenter. Until then, you'll just have to kick it with Dolorean's beautifully recorded third album. Named after the epic hobo novel You Can't Win, these songs focus on the melancholic beauty residing in the peripherals of pastoral American decay. Tempos saunter at the same pace as Harry Dean Stanton's character Travis Henderson in Paris, Texas, while singer Al James's voice slowly sails between Scud Mountain Boys-era Joe Pernice and Will Oldham.
