A summer's Friday night is surely the time for a bit of dancing round the kitchen. So, let's have some big cowboy hats and guitars, yodeling and harmonies and, oh, some fiddle and trumpet to see us our way.
Fur and Steve make fantastic country-soaked folk songs about big highways, big heartbreak, the lure of home and the love of friends. It's impossible not to be charmed. Besides, how can you resist a woman called Fur?
Extra points for the trumpet on the album opener and first song posted here.
