The first album from Left Arm Tan, titled Jim, began with a song called Wish, which would go on to win Song of the Year from SavingCountryMusic. Songs from the album would be played on Texas radio and would chart in Europe. All while the band sat back quietly and began writing for their next project, Thurm. The new EP picked up where Jim left off, but with a greater assurance that LAT was indeed redefining what the cross section of Americana and Texas Country looks like. After Thurm hit the airwaves and the songs Gypsy Road and Ghost of Lila Pearl received extensive European airplay the band decided to remaster the EP for US radio. Working with Rip Rowan, whose past work includes credits with the Old 97's, the Thurm Remaster is a face full of classic Americana.
