Joe Belly – Nickels and Dimes


Joe Belly
Nickels and Dimes
(Independent)

A thoroughly enjoyable collection of homespun tunes with a loose, down-tempo, lazy-evening, country feel. Joe Belly’s (aka Phil Goodland) slightly shakey tenor gets—like a country-mode Neil Young—stronger and more affable with each new album. With his wife Sherry Ryan playing Emmylou Harris to his Gram Parsons, the songs have a warm, familial feel to them, and all the players seem to feel comfortable in their prairie homestead roles. The songs stay true to the homey vibe of the production, with subject matters of mostly domestic concerns: “Marriage in Separate Lives,” or fishing change out of the couch for taxi fare in “Nickels and Dimes.” A modest but very satifying collection with a timeless sound that doesn’t ever seem tired.

    Looking forward to hearing the album!

    I know we’ll get ribbing for spelling it “Nickles” in the print edition, but that’s how it was spelled on the album. Decided to change it here though. Satisfied, spelling fascists??
