Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Durango's self-proclaimed country-fried indie-rock act Farmington Hill sums up Road to Nowhere as "music suitable for both a raucous Saturday night and the accompanying Sunday hangover." Sure enough, some of the five-piece's twangy alt-country tunes — "Oh Yeah," "Pass Me the Bottle," "Pass Out" — could be the ideal soundtrack for throwing back some whiskey and raising hell, but the act also knows how to reel the energy in a bit and dig into more traditional country on tracks like "Levy," which might be a little easier on that hangover. "Daddy, You Don't Care Anymore" steers into Decoration Day-era Drive-By Truckers territory, while "Midnight Superstar" and "Lies to Change Your Mind" recall Uncle Tupelo.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
