Bill Abernathy is an artist originally from Kansas City, Missouri. On June 2nd 2021, he released a brand new single titled “World’s Foremost Authority on Everything”. We took a listen, what did we think? Here goes!
Well, this is definitely country – no doubt about that. This tune doesn’t waste any time getting started, plenty to love from the get-go with a wide variety of sonic textures and colours to get this ball rolling. Bill’s vocal performance throughout fits quite well and is fairly solid. There’s a good beat with the drums, you can hear how the bass is locked right into that groove – toes were tapping here for sure!
Lyrically, a little preachy but for the style and genre of this bit of music – it works just about. Where this track falls down for us is the mix. It doesn’t sound entirely three dimensional, rather bunched together in the middle. As a result, some of the elements are lost within the mix from time to time and there’s almost a battle throughout the frequencies for them to get heard. While this doesn’t necessarily bring the track down for most people, we’re a picky bunch here at Call That Music?
Overall, if you’re a fan of country or want something new to dig your teeth into. This is a fairly accessible composition sure to win over some new fans to country. Despite the odd mix, there is a good chance you’ll have tapped your toes while listening by the time it ends.
