July Talk isn’t easy to pigeonhole. Imagine Tom Waits and Amy Millan shouting whiskey-soaked lullabies while backed by CrazyHorse and youʼd have a start. Striking a balance between Americana and indie-rock, July Talkʻs Beauty & the Beast aesthetic burns a little going down, but leaves you wanting more. Paper Girl is a good intro to their unique sound, make sure to checkout their video repertoire -Cedar & Soil
