    Did you happen to give the new EP by Midland a listen?

      Yes I have listened to it. Normally we don’t review EPs, but I could make an exception. I’m thinking about it.

      I listened to the Midland Ep a couple of days ago. It’s 2,49€ here (Google Play).
      Looks like the Ep (five tracks) was released by Big Machine without much promotion.
      “Throwback” sound, harmony vocals but the lyrics are so-so (“…country rock’n’roll band…”).

      Album Of The Month: Jamie Richards – Latest & Greatest (9/10)
      Surprise Of The Month: Jesse Raub Jr. – Sittin’ Here (8/10)
      Two artists from Texas. Traditional country sound with steel & fiddle. A rocker & a mainstream song thrown in to please radio.

      9/10 album: Mo Pitney – Behind This Guitar
      8/10 album: Rebecca Lee Nye – Gypsy Heart

      Songs Of The Month:
      Jamie Richards – “She’s As Cold As The Beer She’s Drinkin'” (Guitar driven midtempo country-rocker)
      Jesse Raub Jr. – “She’ll Put The Hurt On You” (Texas country, steel, fiddle, guitar, midtempo)
      Tenille Arts – “Dash Light” (love the harmony vocals, very radio-friendly, for Kelsea Ballerini fans)
      J.T. Hodges – “After Midnight” (far, far away from traditional country but i like the atmosphere)

      Billboard Country Update (31/10):
      #1 – Luke Bryan – “Move” (Billboard Country Airplay)
      #1 – Chris Stapleton – Traveller (Billboard Top Country Albums)
      A 1001 week old album is beating Jason Aldean & FGL.
