so, gonna be completely honest, i just started listening to sturgill simpsons’ metamodern sounds in country music, today, but its already one of my favorites of the year. about half way through it, there was a point where i pictured myself in my family’s old dodge van listening to merle haggard. when a record can transport you to another place and time, that truly is an unbelievable feeling. there are records that are growers, then there are those records, like this one, that hit you immediately. its absolutely a country record, but dont let that scare you at all. although, im guessing if you frequent this site, thats not going to be a problem. still this is some fan-fucking-tastic stuff. i know ill be talking more about this throughout the year. so get prepared… my buddy eric over at bucket full of nails has a nice review of the record.
