You could say that Ramsay Midwood plays Americana, but that would imply a version of the United States much stranger than which we inhabit. The Austin-based, Oklahoman-identifying songster – with his arch top guitar and older-than-this-years voice – bakes kooky character descriptions (“He rode into town smellin’ like a Sweet’n Low pecan roll”) into swampy, bluesy, roadhouse boogies. Countercultural country-folk contingent Cactus Lee, armed with mellow melodies and stories as deep as Lake Buchanan, co-soundtrack the Eastside music shack. – Kevin Curtin
