Review

Country Risque brings a certain rapscallion energy to their album, Doe-Eyed Loverboys & Saints, that is reminiscent of ur-queer country artist Lavender Country. The band’s commitment to keeping San Francisco weird is a big part of this aesthetic. This is a band that remembers the grit and grunge and cruising culture of the Bay Area that’s still there if you scratch beneath the surface. Doe-Eyed Loverboys & Saints is queer as in fuck you, and Country Risqué’s easygoing groove makes that attitude quite drinkable.
