EF Country’s Song of the Week: Kendell Marvel – Hard Time With The Truth

first_imgAfter a relatively quiet few months, 2019 is shaping up to be a great year for country music, with plenty of new album announcements and single releases to back them up. This week has been particularly strong on that front, with new releases from the likes of Brantley Gilbert, Riley Green, The Highwomen, Luke Combs and American Young among others.However, the clear winner this week was Kendell Marvel’s Hard Time With The Truth. It’s the first release from his upcoming second album, Solid Gold Sounds, which is due out on 11th October and is the follow-up to 2018’s Lowdown And Lonesome.Take a listen to the track below:The song starts off with a melodic, picked acoustic guitar line before the heavy, pulsing drumbeat kicks in. Marvel’s deep, gravelly vocals are layered over weighty piano chords on the verses, with a measured approach that stops the song from feeling too melodramatic. The quivering strings add to the layers of instrumentation which build up towards a hard rock-influenced chorus, with a wailing electric guitar riff backing Marvel’s powerful belt. You can really feel the conviction in his voice as he sings and he fills the song with raw emotion.However, what really stands out to me are the lyrics, which see Marvel telling a former partner that he’s fallen out of love with her – or perhaps never really loved her at all. There’s a frank, confessional nature to the song as Marvel confronts the reality of his relationship, not only with his ex but also with himself, as he sings ‘When I look into the mirror/Sometimes I don’t like what I see/It’s like I’m looking at the devil/Staring right straight back at me’. It’s definitely a twist on your standard country break-up song and there’s something about that I find really refreshing and authentic. I also really like the wordplay in the chorus – ‘It ain’t that I don’t like lyin’ next to you/Just always had a hard time with the truth’.Hard Time With The Truth is an atmospheric song which draws on blues and classic Southern rock influences and has plenty of dramatic flair, as well as showcasing Marvel’s distinctive vocals. He won over plenty of fans with his first album and on tour in the UK last year, when he supported Brothers Osborne. Based on this evidence, we’re in for another record that delivers more of the same – and should gain him a new audience to boot.Honorable MentionMidland seem to always be the bridesmaid and never the bride in our Song of the Week picks, but they’re still putting out consistently good tracks ahead of their sophomore album, Let It Roll, released later this month. The latest of these is Cheatin’ Songs, which does exactly what it says on the tin.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Sung from the perspective of a man whose wife is having an affair, it’s a classic country tune that sounds like ‘something circa 1973′ (to quote the lyrics), in the vein of Drinkin’ Problem and Burn Out from their debut album. What really surprised me about it though was Mark Wystrach’s delivery – his smooth vocals glide effortlessly over the melody and on the surface come across as quite wry and knowing, but there’s an uncertainty about it that brings the emotion of the song through in contrast to the deceptive, laid-back melody of the song. It’s definitely the best track they’ve put out from Let It Roll so far and is making me very keen to see what they’ve got in store on the rest of the album.last_img read more

Joshua suffers stunning defeat to Ruiz Jr

first_img(Reuters) – Andy Ruiz Jr. dethroned British title-holder Anthony Joshua with a stunning seventh-round stoppage at New York’s Madison Square Garden on Saturday to become the first Mexican-American world heavyweight champion. Joshua, previously undefeated and fighting for the first time in the United States, was defending his IBF, WBA and WBO titles but was knocked down four times in the fight before the referee waved off the contest in the seventh.Joshua said he could have fought on but had no harsh words for the referee.“I want to fight. I am never one of those fighters to disrespect a referee like, ‘he should have done this’ or ‘he should have done that,’” he added. “He called it off when he thought I couldn’t fight. It’s a shame. But I don’t want anyone to drown in their sorrows.”The defeat was a setback but Joshua said he would be back.Andy Ruiz Jr (right) in action with Anthony Joshua Action Images via Reuters/Andrew Couldridge“Boxing is a tough sport. I trained hard, I stayed dedicated. And I just got beat by a good fighter tonight,” he said. “It’ll be interesting to see how far he goes but good luck to him. “I gotta bounce back. This is all part of the journey. Fighter by heart, boxer by trade.”Ruiz had not been given much chance of beating the champion given he had just five full weeks to prepare after Joshua’s scheduled opponent, Jarrell Miller, tested positive performance-enhancing drugs.Ruiz was dropped to the canvas in the third but the heavy brawler came back to down the Brit in the same round and Joshua was lucky to survive. Joshua appeared to recover and worked his jab well over the next few rounds but Ruiz landed big body shots in the sixth to put the champion on the back foot.Joshua went down again in a flurry of Ruiz punches with nearly two minutes left in the seventh and while the British fighter got off his knees just in time to beat the count his legs looked like jelly as he made his way to a neutral corner.The referee asked him if he was okay to continue before waving his arms to end the fight, prompting wild celebrations in the ring by Ruiz and his trainers. “This is what I have been dreaming about,” Ruiz said. “This is what I have been working hard for. I can’t believe I just made my dreams come true. I just want to thank my team and my family. The sky is the limit, baby.”Ruiz said being knocked to the floor in the third round only spurred him on.“That was my first time getting dropped on the floor,” he added. “It just made me stronger. It just made me want it more. I just had to knock him down back.”last_img read more
