Lynn Taylor and the BarFlies, Hollow Man. Drinking can be a rocky road when the tables get turned and what once was so much fun turns into a dead-end run. Lynn Taylor has a way of writing about that two-edged razor and the walk to the other side. The opening song, “Supposed to Be,” captures the aching heartache of a couple caught in the headlights of scuffling sobriety and how it works and doesn’t work. His lyrics have a way of jangling the soul: “I hadn’t seen her in a real long while/I called her up just to hear her smile…” Right. Taylor’s voice goes to what that life is all about, never blinking or asking for favors. But he also never pulls the parachute to escape the living and the loving that fuels us all. Recorded over two days, there won’t be any more direct music released this year. Sometimes things might veer a little close to the edge, but that’s the price that must be paid for honesty. “Don’t take my devils away/They keep my angels company,” Taylor sings. True that.
