Adam Hood is back with his first album since 2014’s Welcome To The Big World. That was one of my favorite records in that year and I was eagerly anticipating his follow up when I heard it would be out this year. Somewhere In Between is a worthy follow up to his last album and it continues the great songwriting and great country songs.
There is a bit of a theme that runs through the album about small towns and small town living. “Alabama Moon” hits at that with it’s infectious chorus longing for a lost piece of paradise. “The Weekend” is another infectious track with a smooth bass groove that will take you straight through the weekend.
“Bayou Girl” takes the listener to the bayou and small town Louisiana where the singer dreams of a small town cajun girl. “Locomotive” is another love song that features a chugging riff in a nice country rock love song. Finally, “Real Small Town” is a folksy / Americana sounding ode to small town USA. The imagery paints a deep picture of small towns all across the country and you can visualize the music video that would go along with this track.
Adam Hood has crafted a great follow-up to his stellar 2014 record. He continues to be a champion for the small man while straddling the line between major artist and still playing the smaller haunts and dives. I look forward to what the future holds for Adam Hood and hopefully, it’s not another four year wait for a new record. Somewhere In Between is out everywhere today October 12, 2018.
