DESCRIPTION

It was a cruel joke alright: trapping a lonesome drifter in an endless chasm of bricks and people. No horizon. No sunsets. No escape. “New York City is an island. Let’s leave it at that,” says James Apollo about his new hometown. “I couldn’t handle it at first...” he says with a hint of a smile, “...and i can’t handle it now.” But for as much as he tried to escape the claustrophobic crush, New York did much to inspire the woeful melodies and desperate mantras of Apollo’s latest EP, Angels we have Grown Apart. The city left Apollo with a new set of scars: a fast motorcycle on a rain-soaked street broke his legs; a raven-haired temptress broke his heart. The pain and anger seep through every anguished stanza of the Western-laced “It’s Cruel,” where James’s crushed-velvet croon cries from a darkened land where no one goes by choice. The rumbles of a bari sax trace “Morphine & Wine,” a melancholic ode to broken nights on a hospital bed. But amid the anguish and the whiskey beats, a glimmer of tenderness: the touching duet “Sleepyeye.” The cast of ‘Angels’ reads like a who’s who of roustabout musicians. Players for the likes of Lou Reed and RL Burnside stopped by to round out the sound of Apollo’s solid troupe of rum-soaked highwaymen, lending true grit to these forlorn tales. The canyon streets of New York City may have hatched these songs, but this is Western music. These songs are for sunsets. Those streetlamps are stars. They lead right out of town.
