There’s something just haunting ingrained in Ross Cooper’s “South of Angels,” a desolate Americana tune shrouded with dark sounds of the midnight hour. His voice rises and falls in tearful patterns, and as he unfurls this tortured piece of folklore, you become entranced in his storytelling.
“Oh, they say nobody makes it here / Oh, this American frontier,” he sputters over twisted, skin-crawling guitar work. Cooper invites you to his table, and you stay for a haunted song, ripe for Halloween.
