In the universe of music-making, countless debates have been had comparing and contrasting less vs. more, style vs. substance, form vs. function. Those debates have little merit if the final product isn't excellent. Quality trumps all other quantitative discussions.
When you look at the recent output of Sundy Best, the Lexington, Ky.-bred duo comprising Kris Bentley and Nick Jamerson, you certainly see they have the "quantity" side taken care of. Since signing with eOne Music in 2013, the band has released three separate studio projects — a deluxe version of their independently produced album Door Without A Screen, early 2014's Bring Up The Sun, and now, a brand new collection of songs titled Salvation City.
People just getting their first taste of Sundy Best over the past couple of years might have chosen to look simply at the form the band took — Jamerson on an acoustic guitar, Bentley on a cajón drum — and overlook the function the sparseness served, delivering raw, yet powerful down-home sonic merged with the childhood friends' intertwining vocals.
For Salvation City's season, though, Jamerson and Bentley have chosen to flip the switch, not only adding more electric instrumentation to the mix, but also adding to the variety of styles the band was already playing adeptly in. The music and ideas on Salvation City fit anywhere and everywhere simultaneously, a challenge in an era that demands easy identifiers, especially when it comes to music.
