The Silos: About Her Steps [Record Collect, 1985]
Nobody would have thought twice if this unknown band had debuted with an EP, especially the complete winner they had in them. Imagine The Velvet Underground as country-rock, fragile lyricism colored with fiddle (or viola) and pedal steel and toughened by a commitment to the everyday. The five (out of eight) songs I'd have chosen are the five longest--since sharp and tight aren't where their gifts are, they don't do anything special with terse little rockers. Though they might yet.
