Country Lips are a country-streaked Seattle nine-piece family-like band. They didn't really mean to be a band, but they've been together for nearly two years now. They're composed of a combination of bands—the Raggedy Anns and Doctor Doctor. They're more just friends who wanted to play country music, who were getting shitty on a Friday night and decided to form Country Lips. Their songs sit well, stitched and lilted with happily tinkered keys and dusky bourboned acoustics. It's wandering, jangled porch music, drifting steadily along like stretched-cotton cirrus clouds. Music to enjoy, not to overthink—music that touches on Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, and the Stones' strummier numbers. It's twangy and fitting for listening to in a field or in a truck bed full of hay.
