His new album, Mescalito, contains hit after hit of gritty and dense material. Songs such as "Borracho Station" incorporate Spanish language and culture into the lyrics. Though his lyrics occasionally become extremely wordy, they evoke a great sense of Bingham's struggles and personality. However, not all of his songs are flooded with his tender and informative accounts on life. Some songs, such as "Bread and Water," sparsely contain lyrics and focus more on bluesy melodies. The album also demonstrates Bingham's inventiveness with the use of mandolins, harmonicas, strong stomps, claps and the slide guitar. While his lyrics and guitar playing are at the forefront of his music, the rest of the sound skillfully emulates loneliness and hardship.
