Re: [fearnwhiskey] DBT (and CVB)
New DBT is solid. The Dirty South slides away from the fiercely personal songwritting of Decoration Day, and moves more toward Mythology, southern or otherwise. John Henry, (who historically is from Holly Springs MI), Buford Pusser, Sun Studios, Stock Car Racing and Moonshiners all feature prominently into the equation on the new record.
The Dirty South also leads into what will certianly be a depature, Jason Isobel gets more songwriting credit on this record. He seems to bring down the three guitar scorch into a more subdued feel. Organs, Piano, closer harmonies, and songs like Danko/Manuel maybe a sign that with Skynrds back catalogue in there pocket, maybe its time for for new territory. Music from the Big Pink, Sweethearts of the Rodeo, hell I'm game to hear it done, and done well, something I'm sure can be pulled off with still hints of Gangstabilly flare.
