Saint Of Lost Causes
Justin Townes Earle – Saint Of Lost Causes
Something of a return to the familiar for Earle, “The Saint of Lost Causes” sees him reunited with longtime producer Adam Bednarik in Nashville after venturing out to Omaha, Nebraska, to record 2017’s Kids in the Streets with Mike Mogis of Bright Eyes. Due to be the second of 12 songs on “The Saint of Lost Causes”‘ running order, “Ain’t Got No Money” and its pared-down arrangement suggests a different direction from the fleshed-out, full-band approach of Kids in the Street, which centered around more personal tales inspired by Music City, his hometown. Earle and Bednarik cut the album at Sound Emporium in Nashville.
