Human Stain (2005)

Deliciously dark, inventive, hardcore country roots underground music that's destined to raise the bar for the future of alternative country. Rand Reynolds creates a unique collection of lyrical tunes that probe the frailties of the human condition, celebrating those second chances in life that make things right again -- or not. Country roots with a rocker bite, Reynolds delivers inventive power acoustic music guaranteed to stick in the brain and gnaw away. Edgier and more pushy than mainstream alternative country artists, Reynolds relies on sweeping guitar strokes and solid punchy rhythms to skillfully weave a refreshing blend of Americana music. Make no mistake, this man has done his homework.
