The new album from Johnny Falstaff is perhaps more of a confessional memoir than a classic country record. With many a mile on his boots, Falstaff has a deep well to draw from. “Every album I make seems to bring it closer to home” Falstaff maintains, “sometimes home is where the heart is, sometimes not”.
The album is Lost in the City Lights, an assemblage that runs the gauntlet between passion and regret. Fashioned around the title track, the songs reverberate with carousing, and resolve with the inevitable consequence. “The city lights have a strong pull, like a moth to the flame”, he adds with an experienced nod, “sometimes you get lucky, sometimes you are just gonna burn”.
