Bourbon Therapy sweep up into ‘This Beautiful Scene’
6/21/19 Review by B-Sides and Badlands
Fire rages around us. So, we escape as best we know how. Sometimes, we hide away in the pages of yellowed novels and collections of poetry. Other times, we slip back into a deep, warm slumber for peace. San Francisco alt-country troupe Bourbon Therapy ⏤ of lead singer Maria Long, Aaron Skiles (vocals, bass, harmonica, piano), Rebecca Cole Skiles (vocals, keys), Josh Manion (drums, vocals), Andrew Waegel (pedal steel guitar, banjo) and Shelby Lanterman (keys, guitar, vocals) ⏤ let their bodies float outside of themselves. “The Beautiful Scene” is a windswept dream, gliding through the syrupy goodness of what life could be before they scatter back to earth. The ruin falls away as quickly as setting sun, however. “Voices rang out through the dark / All joined in to sing a bar / Echoed over hills and streams / But it was just a dream,” Long sings, waxing drowsily poetic. Her angelic voice rings out as an urgent call of desperation, but before you know, you, too, are sunken into a place that’s nowhere and everywhere at the same time. It’s the kind of astonishing performance that’ll grip you tight and never let go.
