Dix Hat Band’s “Cliff Dance” feels like it’s off the beaten path. It’s “Texas Country,” but more eccentric than the usuals. It even feels different than the rest of the EP, which feels more Texas dancehall ready. “Cliff Dance” feels more personal and more out on a limb than the rest. It’s partly what makes it stand out. The other part is that it’s just a good song. Vocalist-guitarist Adam Inmon sounds more at ease, though he’s almost certainly more heartbroken here than at any other moment. His fiddle doesn’t feel paint by the numbers, but almost feels like another voice singing another couple lines that Inmon couldn’t find the words for in his desperation and agony filled ballad.
