If asked a country music artist to write a sound track for the next David Lynch film, you might get something like Paul Evan’s latest CD, Aqua Noir. Equal parts angsty jazz and steel guitar, Evan’s slow paced crooning on this CD burns a deep dark groove that makes most honky tonk tear jerkers seem like this month’s pop music. At first this genre bending mix made my brain hurt but after acouple of tracks I was completely enthralled. Notable tracks include “It’s All Or Nothin’,” and “Her Lonely Forgotten.” But the stand out tracks are “The Screamin’ Hollar Inn,” and “As I Cry My Broekn Heart To Sleep.”
