Album Review: Wild American Runners

Title:  Wild American Runners (BandCamp [Black Numbers], Black Numbers Records, Amazon, iTunes)
Artist:  Arliss Nancy (Facebook, Twitter, BandCamp, Storenvy, ReverbNation, Last.fm)

Arliss Nancy’s third full-length Wild American Runners is an ode to love lost, long nights, and booze powered by the band’s excellent precision.  The record opens with the alt country anthems “Benjamin” and “Troubadour” and from there turns towards the darker and more, for lack of a better term, somber elements of the genre.  From top to bottom, Wild American Runners is an extremely solid release, and one that gets better with each listen.  This is a must for fans of alt country, Americana, and earnest working class Midwestern inspired rock ‘n’ roll. 

Arliss Nancy will be playing with Oklahoma City’s own Red City Radio at the Farmers Public Market on Saturday October 12th.  If you can, check it out, it’s going to be a great show!
