"What is it like to live life on the run?" The Reeling Gilly's Laren Loveless opens this session with a question that he seems to know the answer to.

On their second release -- an EP titled "Jake West," released on the Loud Label -- the St. Louis-based band traces the arc of it's fictional title character, through gospel-drenched admonishments and Southern-rock ballads. The songs performed for this live session form the closing sequence to "Jake West," and they paint at tale in an impressionist smear of carefully stitched, wistful melody.

At the end, it's hard to say that we've come to clearly know Mr. West or what lead to his precarious situation, but the answer to the leading question is clear: There's no redemption at the end of the road. "It's over for you," sings Loveless, closing the session fortified by the high harmonies of his bandmates. While the lead character never finds redemption, the songs themselves are redemptive for the listener. Jake West was doomed from the outset, anyway.
