ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Some of the greatest moments of the album come from its title track. Simultaneously reminiscent of
Waylon Jennings and Pink Floyd, you will find more sonic wizardry on “Warning” than most classic country
inspired tracks. Owen offers a warning to the listener, “this is a warning the wildest of frontiers are already
tamed.”
“After Party, After Life” keeps the party rolling long after the bars close with this indulgent and upbeat
rocker and “Wild Animals” is as close to a rowdy drinking song as you will find in the LLB catalogue. This
barnburner is danceable, relatable and utterly unsentimental when Owen asks, “When did acting dumb stop
being so much fun?”
“Lead Me On” evokes 1990’s Lucinda Williams and features Sie Sie Benhoff on backing vocals that add an
emotional punch to the chorus. Owen remains self-assured even at his most self-deprecating with “maybe
I’m not as handsome as I used to be, wore out my welcome on vanity.” This track is washed in ethereal
reverb, pedal steel and open space. Not even the vivid imagery could crowd the loneliness at the core of
the song.
The album ends with “What a Shame”, a cautionary tale about a character that “could have been the
greatest”. Owen’s lyrics are equally as psychedelic as the music landscape dominated by haunting pedal
steel and warbling pianos. Owen howls on the chorus, “Oh what a shame, what a shame, a victim of our
times and the times they do change, a collusion of the heavens and stars, a mis-spent youth singing in bars”.
On Warning, the band has infectious energy, the imagery is colorful without losing clarity and the characters
are relatable. Owen carries on the legacy of hard living, left-of-center country music, again as he coined,
“weird country”. He points out, “For every, ‘I didn’t like country music until I saw you play tonight,’ I get
two people telling me, ‘that ain’t even country.’ I feel pretty happy with that.”
