#158 The August List – Forty-Rod of Lightnin

There’s an enjoyably raw edge to this country stompalong by husband-and-wife duo The August List. Despite being a couple since 2005, Martin and Jenny Lewis-enthusiast Kerraleigh only began performing together three years ago – a decision that appears to be paying rich dividends from the evidence of this glorious slice of alt-country. ‘Forty-Rod of Lightnin’ is taken from their debut EP, Handsome Skin, which is out on their own Ubiquity Project Records label.
