BIG SEXY - "New Mexico Nights"
MUSIC FARMER 5 - Review by Adam Jones
An Epic Odyssey of Love, Loss, and Longing
Imagine a piece of music so profound it evokes a time forgotten, yet so vividly fresh that it births an intimate connection. "New Mexico Nights" by BIG SEXY is such a song - a transcendental serenade, blending nostalgic echoes with pioneering melodies, crafting a tale as timeless as the stars above the New Mexico desert. No stranger to MusicFarmer5, BIG SEXY continues to deliver an impressive array of brilliantly crafted material on their unstoppable journey to mainstream domination.
BIG SEXY's "New Mexico Nights" unfurls like the desert at dusk, casting vast shadows of epic vocal harmonies reminiscent of a confluence between fun. and the Eagles. The production, intricately woven with the complexity and finesse of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, conjures an aural tapestry as mesmerizing as desert mirages.
The rhythm that emerges is intoxicating. As the groove subtly nudges, one finds oneself swaying in tune, lulled and awakened simultaneously. The slide guitar, reminiscent of a wanderer in a barren expanse, flits gracefully, while the robust piano offers an unwavering oasis amidst the ever-shifting sands. The drums echo like the heartbeat of a solitary traveler under a velvet sky.
And when the woodwind solo surfaces, it does so like a desert zephyr—unexpected yet entirely welcome, bringing forth a touch of mysticism to an already enigmatic journey. The bridge becomes a portal, leading one into the boundless heartland of hope and despair.
The song culminates with a poignancy that tugs at the very core. The refrain, “People try to rise in my heart, but I gotta find my soul or I have to go,” is a haunting showcase of a man's internal expedition, reflected in the narrative intricately painted by the artist.
This track is a reverie, a dream born from the collaboration of Michigan's own lyrical savant, Gary Maccagnone, and the soulful Ukrainian maestro, Alex Goroshko. Their journey, rooted in the shared stories of personal and collective hardships, triumphs, and hope, resonates with a sincerity that transcends borders.
