Belle Adair: Through The Fog

It’s 10 a.m. on a Sunday morning, and Matt Green is a bit congested. His band, Belle Adair, spent the past few days on the road, playing a hazy blend of folk-rock and indie-pop to audiences around the group’s home state of Alabama. Now back at home in Muscle Shoals, Green is drinking hot tea and taking it easy, trying to get his body back in shape for the coming workweek.
“I try to write early in the morning,” he admits, sounding far more chipper and lucid than most traveling musicians should. “I do it before coffee. Before breakfast. It’s almost like precognition. Your mind isn’t completely ready to start the day, so you’re not over-thinking it. You just let it flow.”
Maybe that’s why Belle Adair’s debut album, The Brave And The Blue, is a pitch-perfect soundtrack for those quiet hours right before dawn, when the party-hardy barflies have finally nodded off and the early risers have just started to wake. It’s ambient Americana, shot through with swirls of pedal steel, brushed percussion, keyboard and acoustic guitar. “Golden Days” chimes and swoons like something from Roger McGuinn’s back catalog, and “Losing My Train” chugs along at a casual space, like a locomotive running on liquified Sudafed instead of coal. On the opening track, “Be Brave,” the band even brews up a fog of gorgeous, gauzy guitar noise, creating a sound that purposely falls somewhere between sleepy and stunning.
