There's something admirable about a zen-like sense of resignation when faced with a situation you can't control. M. Dunton seems to have an intimate understanding of that in his latest single, "Bozeman Girl". The song tells simple story of a man who's fallen in love with the untamable spirit of a gal from Montana. He has a high, lonesome quality in his voice akin to Ryan Adams but with a smoother delivery. His vocals exude sincerity and vulnerability, making it impossible not to empathize with the emotions he pours into every word. As he sings about the captivating "Bozeman Girl" who embodies the essence of wanderlust and freedom, you can't help but find yourself rooting for this love, despite the uncertainty that hangs in the air. The song's instrumentation is equally impressive, with a dreamy blend of acoustic guitars washed out pedal steel. The arrangement captures the essence of Alt-Country at its best, lulling you into a state of contemplative reverie. It pulls off the impressive feat of feeling both sun-bleached and overcast at the same time. This is a song is bound to capture the heart anyone who appreciates the beauty of love, even when it's on the brink of slipping away. M. Dunton feels like the kind of man who would greet heartbreak like an old friend, buy it a beer, and reminisce about the good times. I can't help but cheer for someone with that kind of earned wisdom and perspective; in the face of a foregone conclusion, he makes you appreciate the beauty.
