Kilbourn by Run Downhill

Run Downhill creates skillfuly crafted music that draws inspiration from the sound of old, good country - meaning artists like Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Jimmie Rogers, etc. These influences are filtered through a Steely Dan sophistication and DIY intuition.

Run Downhill recently released a video EP called Kilbourn. The music for Kilbourn was recorded live in one day, while the comic book inspired video tells the story of a harvest dance in a small western town called Kilbourn. These sharp updated-country songs were written by vocalist/percussive-polyglot TJ Troy, and the artwork was designed by Scott Angle.

Here is the Youtube video playlist where you can watch all five Kilbourn videos:
