Austin, Texas’ ”Dirty Old One-Man Band” returns on the bracing album Something’s Wrong/Lost Forever.
Scott H. Biram takes a hard-edged approach to his slice of country and rock by altering the microphone levels on the opening track, "Hospital Escape," and the radio friendly romp, "Time Flies." A talented storyteller, Biram’s characters shoot from the hip on the Waylon and Willie-like "Still Drunk, Still Crazy, Still Blue." One part folk artist and two parts rebel/ rocker, Biram slides easily through the shifts in tone and harmony on "Judgement Day" and the contemplative marvel "Wildside."
Produced by Biram and recorded at Hiram’s Hell Hole in Austin, Something’s Wrong/ Lost Forever finds Scott H. Biram achieving success with his microphone distorted broadcasts that offer an alternative to the complacency of modern radio play lists.
Something’s Wrong/Lost Forever is out now on Bloodshot Records.
