Red Eye Junction continues its foray into remorseless, countrified twang with Better Days, the third album by the old-fangled honky-tonk act. Not that these guys inject anything punk-like into their music. Red Eye’s music is the sort of sound you might hear coming out of an AM radio in the late-‘40s.
Like the band’s nostalgic sound, the songs’ lyrics harken back to a time when all a country song needed was a lonesome fellow who’s leavin’ town.
Cain called the new album “a huge step forward for the band in terms of musicianship, songwriting, and production. The first two albums were completed on a pretty tight schedule, so there were concepts that didn’t come out quite as we imagined it. This album however, really captures the idea and sound we had in mind when we started this project just over three years ago. The new album has been six months in the making. It features a ton of great guest musicians”
Pedal steel master Bob Hamilton, banjoists Zach Daniels and Peter Morin, mandolinists Dan Keller and Dave Seidenzahl, cellist Bob Liepman, and fiddler Albert Dines all add to the instrumentation, and Cain gets vocal help by Natalie Haskins on one track and Cody Pendant on another. Curtis Marsh also takes over lead vocal responsibilities on a song he co-wrote called “Beer Bottles Clinkin’.” The album’s 13 other tracks were all penned by Cain.

Red Eye Junction lead singer Reid Cain has a voice made for heartbreak. In “Better Days,” the latest from San Luis Obispo’s honky-tonk heroes, he sings about hangovers, hardship and missed opportunities. The album travels the entire romantic spectrum, from the first heady days of puppy love ( “The Brightest Star”) to the painful end ( “Walk Away”). Whether he’s mourning a lost love ( “April”) or welcoming a new one ( “A Little Wild”), however, Cain’s tenor twang serves as the perfect counterpoint to the band’s classic country sound.
Red Eye Junction performs music from “Better Days” Friday at Downtown Brewing Co. in San Luis Obispo.
