Once Great Estate “Battles” – Listen

This track from Once Great Estate’s eponymous release manages to mix a Southern Rock feel with that slightly unearthly sound we call Southern Gothic with lyrics that could have been robbed out from Led Zeppelin demo’s “there’s a cold wind from the North / and has come to raise the dead / It’s taken all I’ve got / just to stay ahead“.  Course, it could be referencing the war between the states rather than a Tolkinesque fantasy – what the heck,  once Tracy Horenbein ‘s vocal blends with Christopher Ash’s fiddle it doesn’t really matter.

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?
