Cowboys From Mars. Imagine Stray Cats intergalactic. Dwight Yoakam just got back from a planetary station on the dark side of the moon. That is what Alien Country is. Blending sounds alien and domestic. Old and technological. Southern fried, progressive, and strange. This album is only defined by itself and its creator Liam Torres and is titled Like My Life Depends On It.

So Called Friends and Reality Check blends the rock-a-billy feel with a few changes. For the most part, they are pretty straightforward. Then at just a certain moment, there is a bit more. Desire scatters a bit vocally and musically. That makes it an interesting listen. Forced Game streamlines with bending guitars. Can’t Say I Blame You features a great duet and guitars that stay south but at times there is just enough of something else otherworldly. Mommy Dearest is a short instrumental break. Classical, yet hauntingly hillbilly.

Remedy rocks like something from the nineties. Even this is mixed with other sounds that bring back the rebel sound. I’m Going to Enjoy This features almost a rap like vocal delivery but it works for the tune. How Could it Have Been bends strings and definitions. Tell Me So marches like a honky-tonk bar anthem. Hold Me instrumentally, lyrically, and vocally brings the listener to the state of confusion that is intended. No One is Coming features a little edgier punk-a-billy. Like something is about to happen because you’re in someplace you’ve never been and some guy just busted a bottle. The album ends with a remix of Remedy.

Liam Torress didn’t make this album for everyone. Some of the best music is made that way. Alien Country is about one man’s vision. On Like My Life Depends On It, that vision is a little clearer for everyone.

Extended Plays is an ongoing music series of all the music that I stumble upon. I listen to the music, go with my gut and spill my honest and sometimes brutal opinion all over this blog. I hope you take the time to check out the artists I review for yourselves. I tend to believe that I am always right about everything but the most beautiful thing about music is that my opinion doesn’t matter to anyone but myself.
