Talk about odd-bonkers. So Josh T. Pearson was that insanely hairy (long hair, longer beard) chap known mainly for his work with Lift To Experience. Well somewhere in the recent past Josh decided he needed to de-hair and “burn down my reputation” in order to move forward.

Having squeaked into the brilliant-white country music slacks you now see before you, Josh set out to deliberately depart his usual long-form (and more considered, I guess) process of songwriting and create something quick and to the point. Enter The Straight Hits; nine songs penned in just three days using five guiding “pillars” as his rule book. Included guides were having the word ‘straight’ in the title and ensuring that the title must be four words or less (told you – odd-bonkers).

I mean, say what you say about the backstory but fortunately the result is rather lovely. Whether people consider this a kind of attempt at self-sabotage, mere pastiche or genuine quality will be seen, but there’s no denying the palpable sense of pulling your shit together and making fun music that is apparent here.
