Raised by a country songwriter dad amid old-school guitarists in Shreveport, Louisiana, 20-year-old Dylan LeBlanc can't help but let his roots show on his debut, with brooding songs built around pedal steel and fingerpicked acoustics. He's got the doomed romanticism of Townes Van Zandt, and his slurry voice shines with backup from Emmylou Harris and dad James. The vibe is chill and a bit same-y. But on "5th Avenue Bar," a grim boozer's tale set to cello and synth, you can hear all sorts of roads opening up.
