Color Me Lucky

Texas Platters

Not in the Face isn't dead, but Jonathan Terrell makes it increasingly difficult to miss his ATX rock duo given such continued singer-songwriter excellence. A piece with last year's LP Past the Lights of Town, these four songs get under your skin. Lyrics thick with passion and soundscapes created by producer-guitarist John Evans, Color Me Lucky sketches both spacious and roughly hewn. The shimmering title track and the brash, bright "Faye" offer two sides of Terrell's prodigious talents.
