I bought this EP based on my love of Lucero's music. I was unfamiliar with the novel at the time, but I was still blown away by this album. 6 songs (and one instrumental) of stripped down acoustic storytelling at it's finest. The album features only acoustic guitar, accordion, piano and brief flourishes of pedal steel and electric guitar to accompany Nichol's trademark gravelly voice. The production of the album is sparse but amazing. The tone of the album is similar to Springsteen's Nebraska.
I was inspired by this album to read the book Blood Meridian. Upon reading it I was even more impressed with the songwriting on this album. The songs capture the bleak and disturbing nature of the book, and the lyrics do a nice job of sketching out the characters, including details and dialogue from the book.
Overall this is an amazing album. Be sure to pick it up, and check out Ben's work with Lucero.
