Logan Ledger's self-titled debut album matches his moody noir lyricism with a darkly toned take on country music, a sound that's stylistically wayward yet deeply grounded in classic songmanship. Produced by Grammy-winning producer T Bone Burnett, the album finds Ledger backed by guitarist/pedal steel player Russ Pahl, Marc Ribot, drummer Jay Bellerose and bassist Dennis Crouch, threading in elements of acid rock and surf music and baroque '60s pop to forge a decidedly Californian sound.
