While there have been some fine alt-country acts to come out of Fort Collins (namely Drag the River and Arliss Nancy), there hasn't been a whole lot of fresh talent working in the genre as of late. But Mosey West, which has been together for almost a year, might give those earlier acts a run with its five-song debut, Vaca Money — even if the outfit isn't quite as edgy. On Vaca, the group starts off on a fairly tame note with the acoustic-based "Lonesome River" before kicking things up a notch with the electrified country rock of "Hell Hounds." The other three tracks are rooted in alt-county yet have distinctly different feels, showing that Mosey West is equally as adept at playing foot-stomping tunes as it is offering up more heartfelt cuts like "Crystal Fire."
