I truly admire artists who work within the realm of low-fidelity. The rawness and honesty of the ragged tone adds dimension to the mood. The songs have nowhere to hide. Rob Roemer records and performs as Loaded Goat, a stark, one-man alt-country diatribe full of haunting melody in a kind of dirt road aesthetic. There's just enough loneliness to evoke empathy but not too much to beg for sympathy. Just five songs straight from the gut right to the heart.
