Expect New Sound From Drive-By Truckers On New Release

At the top of my list of new music that I have to listen to is the new Drive-By Truckers album, Go-Go Boots, which just came out on Tuesday. Word has it that the new album deviates from the their normal alt-country sound. If the first single “Everybody Needs Love” (which can currently be heard on the Moose) is any indication of the album’s sound I would strongly agree. Here’s Rolling Stone’s review of Go-Go Boots which has only further sparked my ear’s interest.

File under “R&B murder.” That’s how Drive-By Truckers describe the music on their ninth studio album, a raggedy revision of classic southern soul, complete with two Eddie Hinton covers. It’s a slight shift from DBT’s usual muscular alt-country, but the rest is familiar: great storytelling — finely-detailed tales of embittered ex-police officers (“Used to Be A Cop”), adulterous Baptist preachers (“Go-Go Boots”), and emotionally-scarred Vietnam veterans (“Ray’s Automatic Weapon”) — hinged to choruses that lodge in your cranium. The groove on songs like “The Thanksgiving Filter” are pure Muscle Shoals — frontman Patterson Hood’s father played bass in the hallowed Muscle Shoals rhythm section — but the lyrics are hilariously 2011: “My Aunt’s praising Palin and my niece loves Obama/My uncle came to dinner wearing his pajamas.”
