Alien Eyelid – “4737 Jefferson”
Houston’s Alien Eyelid skirt away from the garage/noise connotations of their moniker for an album that’s more in line with their southern rock surroundings. The first single from the band’s Tall Texan debut, Bronze Star, is a slow strummer kicking dirt off of it’s scuffed sneakers. The song’s steeped in an air of alt-country — not quite as rough roped as newcomers like Country Westerns or Loose Koozies, but splitting the difference between those two and something more plaintive like Bonny Doon. “4736 Jefferson” is a loner’s lament, winding down a few beers deep to wax nostalgic. The tune settles into a rumpled acceptance right up through the two-minute mark when the guitars begin to tear apart the peace the first half is trying to maintain. The song’s scars are fresh and fragrant. Bronze Star is out May 5th.
