Shake Me Up is an emotive bit of pop-rock that soars on the inimitable vocals of Chris Riffle and a smoky, dense set of instrumentation that has guitars, drums, and bass all contributing to something beautiful. Nothing But the Waves expands upon Shake Me Up and adds a contemplative sound and blends together hints of desert rock with impeccable time signatures.
Closer Where I Wanna Be opens up the instrumental side into something epic, having Riffle’s vocals do double duty in telling a story and furthering the arrangements on the track. Less Traveled concludes the Out of Town and winds things up perfectly. A sorrowful and slow approach taken here will stick with listeners long after the release has ceased.
