The new one from Bonny Light Horseman finds the trio in a wistful, almost mournful, state of sound. Building out of a relaxed, dream-like atmosphere, the trio move at a canter across a combination of Americana and acoustic grooves. 

Light, welcoming and filled with a sense of summer, Keep Me on Your Mind is a lovely trek across minimal, Sweethearts-of-the-rodeo, blends of country, folk and lush harmonies. Standouts including the title track, I Know You Know and Tumblin Down showcase a combination of songs filled with an equal sense of mid-life regret and optimism for the future. 

Both heart-breaking and heart-making, Keep Me on Your Mind is a lovely journey across open planes, yearning thought patterns and missed opportunities.
