Saw these guys for the first time at Toronto Urban Roots Festival. It won't be the last. Great band. Check out my pics here on my site: http://www.oneintenwords.com/2014/07/turf-day-2-band-4-drive-by-truckers.html
6/10 for English Oceans: "
Overall, this is an immediate let down on the previous work of DBT. Too often the sound is thrown around in different spaces, and a heavier attitude to contrast with the almost soulful Go-Go Boots is not in keeping with their contemporary sound. Cooley was excited that with the reduction of members, DBT could channel more of their original country roots and really hone a singular sound. Unfortunately, whilst it doest at times sound more consistent than their previous work, the roots in that soulful experiment still remain, and Hood hasn't quite snapped out of that phase yet." http://www.bensbigblog.com.au/2014/04/drive-by-truckers-english-oceans.html
Had a dream last night that they needed a guitarist for a local show and somehow I was selected to fill that spot. I played Extremely Horrendously and was shamed by the band and fans relentlessly afterwards. The only song I remember playing was Play It All Night Long.
