Here’s the track listing from the label’s press release:

“Show Me The Way” by Sean McMahon

‘Show Me the Way’ encapsulates Sean’s innate talent, weaving poetic lyricism with fuzz guitars and a cosmic country resonance without sacrificing his melodic songwriting pedigree.”

“Dreaming of You” by Jeb Cardwell

A delicious cross between J.J Cale and Tom Petty with a swampy dose of Tony Joe White, ‘Dreaming of You’ is a blues and soul based rocker, featuring Jeb’s killer voice playing in harmony with lusciously layered guitars.

“Round Again” by Greenville

‘Round Again’ is a multi-layered, alt-country gem from Matt Green with a sing-a-long chorus backed by Crazy Horse era Neil Young-esque fuzzed out licks and soaring vocals.

“Xmas Lights” by James Ellis & the Jealous Guys

A wistful, country folk song highlighting James’ strength in homegrown storytelling and evocative arrangements, reminiscent of Paul Kelly’s ‘How to Make Gravy’; “Xmas Lights’ is an essentially Australian sound with a desert highway backdrop.
