Faithful Brave & Honest is the second full-length from The Honorable South, and while a little bit more mellow than I Love My Tribe, it is no less delightful.

Champagne, which is built around a heavy, aggressive rock and roll guitar:
And finally The Sun Dance, which is fluid and mellow and a call to try harder and shine brighter:
