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.
