Ludlow “The Country” – Listen

Ludlow are a five piece band from Chicago who have just released their new EP  ‘Sunset Blues’, which this track is taken from.  It’s a song that reflects on how different people see the USA in different ways and that there actually are many Americas encompassed within those national borders.  As song writer Mark Schoek reflected “some folks would think “the country” is America, and some would think “the country” is the sticks, farmland, outside of town….I was thinking about the type of folks who are hesitant to leave their small towns – let alone the U.S. itself – but still develop and harbour intense nationalist views with pride for a country they’ve barely seen.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
