    English Oceans

    ATO announces that Drive-By Truckers will be releasing English Oceans in 2014. Rolling Stone released the news exclusively today calling it a "return to simplicity."
    English Oceans, the band's 12th release, is an elegantly balanced and deeply engaged new effort that finds the group refreshed and firing on all cylinders. "It can go from this chainsaw rock 'n' roll to this very delicate, pretty-sounding stuff," says Mike Cooley.


    English Oceans was recorded over 13 days at Chase Park Transduction Studios in Athens, GA with their longtime producer, David Barbe. Cooley fans will be happy that he brought six new songs to the sessions and this record marks the first time that Cooley sings a song penned by Patterson Hood on "Til He's Dead or Rises."


    In typical DBT fashion the songs depict an array of characters. "Pauline Hawkins," is based on a new novel by Willy Vlautin. DBT's ever-keen political edge can be seen in two songs on the record. Cooley's "Made Up English Oceans" and Hood's "The Part of Him." "It's about political assholery - there's someone new playing that role every few months," says Hood. "Grand Canyon," the final song on the album, is an emotionally overwhelming tribute to Craig Lieske, a longtime member of DBT's touring family. Lieske died suddenly in January and the album is dedicated to him.


    The album was recorded with a compact, retooled lineup. Jay Gonzalez, who joined the band in 2008 as keyboardist, has added guitar to his duties, while bassist Matt Patton was drafted from the Tuscaloosa group The Dexateens. "It's a very tasteful group, and when it needs to be it can be a very big, powerful, over-the-top band, too, and it can go from one to the other seamlessly," says Hood.

    American Band

    LP Includes Bonus 7-Inch Single


    Drive-By Truckers have always been outspoken, telling a distinctly American story via craft, character, and concept, all backed by sonic ambition and social conscience. Founded in 1996 by singer/songwriter/guitarists Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood, the band have long held a progressive fire in their belly but with AMERICAN BAND, they have made the most explicitly political album in their extraordinary canon. A powerful and legitimately provocative work, hard edged and finely honed, the album is the sound of a truly American Band - a Southern American band - speaking on matters that matter. DBT made the choice to direct the Way We Live Now head on, employing realism rather than subtext or symbolism to purge its makers' own anger, discontent, and frustration with societal disintegration and the urban/rural divide that has partitioned the country for close to a half-century.


    AMERICAN BAND's considerable force can in part be credited to the sheer musical strength of the current Drive-By Truckers line-up, with Hood and Cooley joined by bassist Matt Patton, keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist Jay Gonzalez, and drummer Brad Morgan - together, the longest-lasting iteration in the band's two-decade history. AMERICAN BAND follows ENGLISH OCEANS and 2015's IT'S GREAT TO BE ALIVE!, marking the first time DBT have made three consecutive LPs with the same hard-traveling crew.

    The Big To-Do

    ATO Records is pleased to commence its relationship with the The Drive-By Truckers beginning with the incomparable rock band's label debut, The Big To-Do. The album is the band's 10th in their thirteen-year career and it features 13 new DBT tracks produced by their long time collaborator, David Barbe (Sugar, Bettye LaVette). Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley continue to handle chief songwriting duties here while bassist Shonna Tucker also contributes two originals. Brad Morgan (drums), John Neff (guitar/pedal steel), and Jay Gonzalez (keyboards) round out the current lineup.


    The Big To-Do was recorded in three concentrated sessions during the first part of 2009: ten days in January, five days in March, ten days in May. That added up to 25 songs, a dozen of which sequenced into The Big To-Do. We had it mixed, mastered, and completely done, and Cooley wrote the best song that just needed to be on it, Patterson says with his raspy chuckle. This happens a lot with the Truckers, and it's always a good sign. So we went back in and recorded, mixed, and mastered 'Birthday Boy' pretty much in one fell swoop. Thirteen songs, then.
    The balance of the remaining tracks, plus five more they've cut in the interim, will make up the Truckers' next album, which Patterson projects as a quieter affair.
    This is, in large part, possible because the Truckers have such a long-standing relationship with David Barbe (ex-Sugar, etc.) and the Athens, GA, studio he calls Chase Park Transduction, which long ago Patterson helped to build so as to earn the right to record there.


    It's gotten to where, that day of set-up time to get sounds and levels and all of that takes us about two hours, Patterson says. We can pretty much walk in the door, and we know exactly where to put everything to get that sound, so that's just one less thing to have to think about. I wanted to eliminate the distractions. That clarity of purpose translates into a delicious assortment of Trucker songs themed loosely around crime and (self-) punishment. The Wig He Made Her Wear, Patterson says, is both a true story (as seen on Court TV) and the closest he's come to making the movie he started out to make a decade or more back. The Fourth Night of My Drinking will speak for itself, and This Fucking Job (paired thematically with Cooley's wry Get Downtown) is arguably the most political song the Truckers have made since Living Bubba. Which leaves the deceptive, airy simplicity of Shonna Tucker's You Got Another and (It's Gonna Be) I Told You So to reckon with. We always knew she had that in her, Patterson says, delighted with the emergence of another strong songwriter in the band. It was never a secret. She was writing songs all along. But watching it come out has been a really amazing thing to behold.


    Off the road, incidentally, didn't mean out of work. First off, there was the matter of cutting an instrumental album with the legendary Booker T, having previously served as the backing band to the equally legendary soul singer, Bettye Lavette. Potato Hole turned out all right, got a Grammy nod, and Neil Young added his touches separately even though it's pretty much a Truckers effort. But it's what they learned making Potato Hole that counts most. I think doing the Booker album really, really paid off a lot on the musical end of this record, even though stylistically it might not sound anything like that record, says Patterson, and then tells the story.


    We made that record in four days, and that included the first day when it was, 'Booker, it's wonderful to meet you!' Maybe the third song we tracked just wasn't going the way he wanted it to go. We weren't quite understanding what he wanted. We were playing it right, but it wasn't right. All the sudden he just stopped the session. He gathered us around, and he told us a story about a Thanksgiving dinner, and the way it smelt in the house, he'd been on the road a long time, and they were all in - cousins and aunts he hadn't seen in several years. He said, 'It's just a day where nothing happens, but it's all really good.'


    And we sat down and we played it, and we nailed it. It was like a revelation. We're a lyric-driven band, and our songs generally paint scenes and tell stories based on scenes. He instinctively knew that was how we operated. And I think it taught us a lot about how we operated. Going in and making this record, I could tell a real difference in the way the songs hold up musically. We put a little more care into that side of it than I think we ever did before because of what we learned from him.


    ...an absorbing hunk of smart, crunchy, guitar-driven music shot through with the bands vivid narratives, balanced storytelling, barroom punch, and Southern accents. Its a set that portrays desperate people trying to survive in these ever more desperate times, with the Truckers joyous pride and spirited attitude warding off any bitter aftertaste. Several songs are sad, and at times depressing, but the moods always point up. As it is for Bruce Springsteen, this blue-collar band not only believes in but preaches rock as salvation, and their iron-clad conviction suggests they wont have it any other way. --Bob Gendron, TONE Audio, Issue 27

    Alabama Ass Whuppin' (Awaiting Repress)

    Special Reissue of This Long Out Of Print Live Album From 2000


    A live recording featuring a great collection of punk-based country rock. This is some stomping, driving music, with an urgency not heard in most alt-country. Patterson Hood's raspy vox perfectly fit the music, and the warm guitar sound dominates. Since this is a live album, the songs incorporate some extended bluesy jams. The performance is staggering enough to elicit the drunken shouts for More! at the end of the album.


    The punk roots of the band are evident, most explicitly in the Jim Carroll cover on track 11. Steve McQueen is a rousing tribute to a childhood hero, which segues into Gimme Three Steps and back again. The Avon Lady is an improvised tale of a neighbor who's a tad overzealous in the pushing of make-up products. Margo & Harold, a song about how people grow weirder with each passing year, also does the service of explaining the title. The most powerful track on the disc is The Living Bubba, a plaintive cry from a musician dying of AIDS, needing just a little more time to live as he's got another show.


    The drunken pyschobilly is what gives the compositions their energy and momentum, but it is songs like this one which gives the album its power. Great stuff.

    The Sirens Of The Ditch

    For the past six years, Jason Isbell was one of three frontmen for the critically acclaimed Drive-By Truckers and although fans may have been shocked by his departure from the band in April of 2011, once you hear this, his solo debut Sirens Of The Ditch (which was co-produced by Isbell and Patterson Hood) it will only confirm that Isbell by no means is putting his feet up. Musicians joining Isbell on the album include Shonna Tucker (bass) and Brad Morgan (drums) with cameos from Patterson Hood, his father David Hood, Spooner Oldham, John Neff and more.


    Recorded over the past four years at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals (Aretha Franklin, Duane Allman, Otis Redding), Sirens Of The Ditch is a diverse collection of songs that incorporates elements of rock, blues and soul music into a heartfelt mix of songs that favor piano and pedal steel over buzzing guitars, although theres a fair share of overdriven amps here as well. A lot of old soul musicians came through here in the late 60s and 70s and helped define the Muscle Shoals sound, the lifelong Alabamian explains, so that influence was always in my environment, but on this record I really tried to capture that.

    Modern Creation

    For their fifth album, the Athens-bred/Nashville-based
    power trio the Whigs wanted to find the exact
    midpoint between raw and rehearsed. After more than
    a decade together-during which they've released four
    critically lauded studio albums and toured constantly as
    either headliners or openers for the likes of the Drive-By
    Truckers, Kings of Leon, and MGMT-the three members
    all agreed that they wanted to flex their muscles a bit:
    write some good songs, get them down as tight as
    possible, hit , and tear shit up.

    There's A Blue Bird In My Heart

    Anders Parker has a recording of new music coming out June 17th, and it is called There's a Blue Bird in my Heart. Released by his new record label, Recorded & Freed, the album of nine distinct tracks was created in Burlington, Vermont. The initial tracks were all cut live with his band Cloud Badge, before the process relocated to Athens, Georgia for additional recording and mixing by the legendary David Barbe (Bob Mould, Drive-by Truckers, Son Volt), and guest appearances by local Athens talent. This is the first release of new Parker material in over four years. A.P. did not sit idle during the interim, having recorded and released more than twenty-three tracks with the Woody Guthrie-inspired New Multitudes supergroup that also included Jay Farrar, Jim James, and Will Johnson. He also released a beautifully lyrical album of music with longtime ally Kendall Meade called Wild Chorus under the band name, Anders & Kendall. All of these efforts add to the continued entries in the ledger of his life's body of work that include his work with Space Needle, Gob Iron (also with Jay Farrar), five albums recorded under the anonymity of the name Varnaline, five albums recorded under his name, and a live "field recording" from a Portland, Oregon tour stop in 2005.

    From The Hills Below The City

    Houndmouth is comprised of four musicians from New Albany, IN, across the
    river from Louisville - hence 'From the Hills Below the City.' Matt Myers (guitar/
    vocals), Katie Toupin (keyboard/vocals), Zak Appleby (bass/vocals) and Shane
    Cody (drums/vocals) spent the past year building a passionate following in their
    hometown and touring with the Alabama Shakes, the Lumineers, Grace Potter,
    and the Drive-By Truckers. "Houndmouth is a great young band," testifies Patterson Hood of the Truckers. "They 'brought it' each and every night. They were
    extremely popular with our fanbase and our band. I look forward to hearing what
    they do next."


    The 12 original songs on 'From The Hills Below the City' are packed with tales
    of down-on-their-luck drug runners, casinos, riverboats, recession-era scraping,
    and more. All members of Houndmouth sing, "leading with individual character
    and harmonizing in saloon-choir empathy," writes Rolling Stone's David Fricke,
    and their songs have a loose-limbed swing, anchored by a sturdy rhythm and a
    cagey melodic sensibility.

    Grayson Capps Direct-To-Disc Volume 3

    Having drawn comparisons to the likes of Tom Waits, Townes Van Zandt and Drive By Truckers, to name but a few, Grayson Capps proves an artist equally singular in vision as those to whom hes compared. He doesnt always paint the prettiest pictures or offer a gleamy white smile, but he does reach down deep to remind us of our own humanity. Capps descends from the celebrated American Southern literary tradition and his songs deal with the South and the idiosyncrasies of its people, landscapes and tempos.


    His backing band, The Lost Cause Minstrels, comprises some of the finest players on todays Gulf Coast music scene, including Corky Hughes on guitar, Chris Spies on keys, Christian Grizzard on bass and John Milham on drums.

    Heat Lightning Rumbles In The Distance (Awaiting Repress)

    The songs which comprise Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance were originally conceived as part of a novel written by Patterson Hood on the road while touring with the Drive-By Truckers. While the book eventually fell by the wayside, the songs kept coming.


    Featuring 12-new compositions from one of America's most talented songwriters and storytellers, the album is co-produced by Hood and longtime colloborator David Barbe. The album features appearances from quest vocalist Kelly Hogan, members of Drive-By Truckers, Centro-matic, and Patterson's father, the legendary Muscle Shoals bass player David Hood. 180g vinyl pressing with CD.


    "In the end, I think we made the most intimate and personal record of my career and I'm extremely proud of how it all turned out." - Patterson Hood

    Sirens Of The Ditch (Deluxe Edition)

    Featuring 4 Previously Unreleased Tracks From The Original Recording Sessions


    2x 180 Gram Vinyl


    Recorded At Fame Studios, Muscle Shoals, Al


    "a strong debut, full of the kind of confident, charismatic songwriting that just can't be taught." - Pitckfork


    "Isbell could be roots rock's Flannery O'Connor." - Spin


    The debut album from accomplished guitarist and songwriter Jason Isbell,
    formerly of Drive By Truckers (DBT), is reissued with 4 unreleased tracks
    from the original recording sessions. The addition of those 4 extra songs
    finds Sirens Of The Ditch clocking in at 15 total tracks.


    Sirens Of The Ditch's mystical quality can be partially attributed to the
    FAME recording studio (Aretha Franklin, Duane Allman, Otis Redding) in
    Isbell's hometown of Muscle Shoals, AL where the album was recorded.
    Co-produced by Isbell and Patterson Hood (DBT), Sirens Of The Ditch
    features Isbell singing lead vocals and playing guitar throughout, joined
    by Shonna Tucker (Formerly of DBT) on Bass and Brad Morgan (DBT)
    on drums. Several musicians pop in for cameos including Spooner Oldham
    and David Hood (Patterson's father) on "Down In A Hole", John Neff (Formerly
    of DBT) on "Dress Blues" and Patterson himself guests on "Shotgun
    Wedding."

    Audition Tapes

    Audition Tapes is venerable luminary of psychedelic grunge, T. Hardy Morris's debut solo album, released on Dangerbird Records.


    Morris is best known for his work with Dead Confederate, a band that he co-founded and has recorded and toured with since 2006. More recently, Morris formed Diamond Rugs, the raggedly righteous gang of rockers that also includes members of Deer Tick, The Black Lips and Los Lobos. Morris took some time over the past year to write a collection of songs that reflect the best qualities of his group projects while also exploring entirely new sonic territories. Audition Tapes exposes Morris' considerable depth as a songwriter and taps into his vast experiences as a performer, having toured extensively over the past 6 years with the likes of the Meat Puppets, Dinosaur Jr., Deer Tick, Manchester Orchestra, Drive By Truckers and many more.


    Audition Tapes was helmed by Cosmic Thug (Adam Landry and Justin Collins), the Nashville-based production duo behind the aforementioned Deer Tick, Diamond Rugs and Middle Brother projects. Hardy says of the making of the album, "For obvious reasons, I knew I wanted to record Audition Tapes onto tape, and preferably in a small studio, recorded as live as possible, late at night. So that's pretty much what we did over in Nashville."


    Audition Tapes finds Morris abundantly inspired, oftentimes invoking the grand spirits of Elliot Smtih, Alex Chilton or fellow Georgian Vic Chesnutt. On songs such as "Quit Diggin", "Hard Stuff" and especially the gorgeous title track, listeners are treated to intimate, fragile performances, so informal that we are invited to hear creaks and count-offs, finger taps on guitar strings and other warm and extraneous studio noise.


    The whole affair is so perfectly imperfect that you feel as if you've stumbled upon it all on your own - a hushed secret. Dangerbird Records founder Peter Walker said, "This is the kind of songwriting and performance that you can really lean into - the record cuts through any sort of pretense and nails you straight in the heart from its first breath."

    Dark Night Of The Soul

    This musical DNA has been in Jimbo Mathus since birth. His father and relatives
    were all skilled musicians who filled the house with old folk, country and blues
    tunes. By the age of eight, Mathus was joining them on mandolin and by his
    teenage years had learned guitar and piano. High school led to playing in punk
    and new wave bands, the most notable being Johnny Vomit and the Dry Heaves
    and The End, with future Oblivian Jack Yarber. Post high school, Mathus studied
    Philosophy at Mississippi State University before leaving to travel around
    America. In doing so he worked various jobs, including an influential stint as
    a barge tankerman on the mighty Mississippi River. Settling in Chapel Hill,
    N.C., he drummed in the cult rock band Metal Flake Mother prior to starting
    the Squirrel Nut Zippers. This ahead-of-its-time retro roots band scored a hit
    with "Hot" and performed at President Clinton's second Inauguration and the
    1996 Summer Olympics. Following the Zippers' split, Mathus worked with such
    noted artists such as Buddy Guy and Elvis Costello, and collaborated with North
    Mississippi Allstars guitarist Luther Dickinson and Alvin Youngblood Hart in the
    South Memphis String Band. He also recorded his own albums (including one
    dedicated to his childhood nanny Rosetta Patton, the daughter of Delta blues
    icon Charley Patton).


    On most of 'Dark Night's' tracks, Mathus' acoustic guitar is surrounded by
    the electric guitar played by his longtime sideman Matt Pierce and pal Eric
    "Roscoe" Ambel. (Ambel produced 'White Buffalo' but on 'Dark Night' he focuses
    exclusively on his righteous guitar playing.) The album's raw, rock sound arose
    from the fact that most of the tracks were recorded live in the studio with
    Mathus' band, the Tri-State Coalition, which he found "very liberating way of
    doing it." Mathus feels very in synch with his bandmates (keyboardist Eric
    Carlton, drummer Ryan Rogers, guitarist Pierce and guest bassist and Drive By
    Trucker Matt Patton) since they have played together now for several years.
    "The intensity you're hearing on this album," he proclaims, "is the spirit of a
    band that is put ting it's shit on the line ."

    Among The Ghosts (Pre-Order)

    Lucero's ninth studio album, Among the Ghosts, is their first for noted Nashville indie label Thirty Tigers. It was recorded and co-produced with Grammy-winning engineer/producer and Memphis native Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price, Drive by Truckers) at the historic Sam Phillips Recording Service, the studio built by the legendary producer after outgrowing his Memphis Recording Service/Sun Studio.


    Recorded primarily live as a five-piece, Among the Ghosts eschews the Stax-inspired horns and Jerry Lee Lewis-style boogie piano featured on some of the band's past recordings for a streamlined rock & roll sound that pays homage to their seminal influences as it seeks to push that legacy into the future. For a band who carried the torch of the alt-country movement back in the 90's and helped pave the way for what is now called Americana, Lucero have re-discovered what inspired them in the first place. The sound is more their own and at the same time not exactly like anything they've done before. This is a band settling into their craft. The 10-song disc's title is both a tribute to the spirits which roam the streets of their fabled city, as well as the hard road the determinedly independent band set out on 20 years ago. The band played around 200 shows per year for many of those 20 years.


    With a nod to his younger brother Jeff Nichols, an acclaimed filmmaker whose movies include Loving, Mud, Take Shelter, Midnight Special, and Shotgun Stories; Nichols has written songs that are cinematic short stories, steeped in Southern gothic lore. There are nods to regional authors like Flannery O'Connor and Faulkner, as well as newer writers like Larry Brown (Big Bad Love, Fay), Ron Rash (The Cove, The World Made Straight), and William Gay (The Long Home).


    As the first album he's written since his marriage and the birth of his now two-year-old daughter Izzy, Nichols approached the task as a narrator rather than in first person. It's a dark palette that includes tales of a haunting ("Among the Ghosts"), a drowning ("Bottom of the Sea), a reckoning with the devil ("Everything has Changed"), a divorce ("Always Been You"), and a shoot out ("Cover Me"). And that's just Side A. Side B is a letter from a battlefield ("To My Dearest Wife"), a crime ("Long Way Back Home"), a straight-out rocker ("For the Lonely Ones") and even a spooky spoken-word cameo from actor Michael Shannon, who has appeared in every one of Nichols' brother's films. The song's title "Back to the Night" references a line from Nick Tosches' Jerry Lee Lewis biography, Hellfire. In addition, there's a song Nichols wrote for his brother's movie Loving, which appeared in the film and on the soundtrack, re- recorded for Among the Ghosts with the whole band.


    "You could also say there's a rescue, a getaway, a survival story and a middle finger to Satan himself," laughs Nichols. "It's all in your perspective."


    Several songs juxtapose going off to battle with a rock & roll band's endless touring, shifting time periods like the spirits which haunt the album, the happiness of domestic bliss undercut with fears of loss and the specter of mortality. Among the Ghosts simultaneously reprises the past and looks to the future, while being firmly anchored in the present.


    Musically, the band highlights range from co-founding member Brian Venable's Dire Straits-meets-War on Drugs guitar pyrotechnics in "Bottom of the Sea" and "Cover Me" to the Springsteen vibe of "For the Lonely Ones," Rick Steff's skeletal piano lines on "Always Been You," John C's bass lines in "Everything Has Changed" and "Long Way Back Home," and drummer Roy Berry's dynamic shifts from the powerful and brutal title track "Among the Ghosts" to the marching drive of "To My Dearest Wife" and the subtlety of "Loving." Throughout, Nichols' bourbon-soaked growl has become even more distinctive and commanding.


    Among the Ghosts offers a timeless perspective on Lucero's distinctive sound. The lyrics could've been written 200 years ago or yesterday. Representing a new South compared to the one that's been mythologized, Lucero have formulated their own ideas and culture which, in some cases, contradicts what came before them (no Confederate flags), but also updates and reconsiders those traditions in a new light.


    "I think we've tried to remake this place that we love and cherish in our own fashion. We are very proud of where we are from and we've spent the last 20 years trying to bring a bit of our version of home to the rest of the world It may have taken 20 years, but everything has fallen in place right where it needs to be," acknowledges Nichols. "There were some dark days in those middle years, but we've learned how to do this and survive. We still write heartbreak songs, but now, with a family at home, it's a whole new kind of heartbreak."


    Among the Ghosts lays out that new territory with alacrity, as Lucero shines their Morning Star, burning just as brightly, if not more so, 20 years later. As one of the album's song titles so aptly puts it, "Everything Has Changed," but one thing hasn't Lucero's music remains more vital than ever.
