    Metamodern Sounds In Country Music (Awaiting Repress)


    " he understands that good hooks hang on great rhythms
    and every sob story requires an uppercut punch line."-The Washington Post


    " humbly fantastic."-SPIN


    "...this is GOOD COUNTRY something I think any music lover
    (country or not) can appreciate."-My Old Kentucky Blog


    Sturgill Simpson isn't one to rest on his laurels, which is why, less than a year after the release of his critically acclaimed debut,
    High Top Mountain, the singer-songwriter is coming out with his captivating and wholly unique sophomore album, Metamodern
    Sounds in Country Music. The album title - an allusion to Ray Charles' groundbreaking 1962 record, Modern Sounds in Country and
    Western Music -- hints at the psychedelic sounds found within, a departure from Simpson's first album, which drew comparisons
    to the music of Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard. "I think that there is a lot of room in country music for progression and sonic
    oscillation, which is what I wanted to explore." Where some artists find inspiration from other music, Simpson found his in books,
    devouring religious texts both ancient and modern, recent studies about discoveries in quantum physics and string theory, and
    publications by Carl Sagan and Terence McKenna. He also drew upon French filmmaker Gaspar Noe's experimental drama Enter the
    Void as he created murky, multi-textured soundscapes that incorporate elements of classic country, bluegrass, rock, and even a bit
    of electronica, a genre that Simpson admits he has a "slight fetish" for.

    A Sailor's Guide To Earth

    Produced by Simpson, A Sailor's Guide To Earth was written-beginning to end-as a letter to his first child who arrived during the summer of 2014 and features eight original songs as well as a rendition of Nirvana's In Bloom.


    Recorded primarily at Nashville's The Butcher Shoppe, Simpson was joined in the studio by Grammy Award-winning engineer David Ferguson (Johnny Cash, John Prine, Cowboy Jack Clement) and assistant engineer Sean Sullivan. Along with members of his touring band, the album features Dave Roe on bass, Dan Dugmore on steel guitar, Dougie Wilkinson on bagpipes, Garo Yellin and Arthur Cook on cello, Jonathan Dinklage and Whitney LaGrange on violin and special guests The Dap-Kings.


    A Sailor's Guide To Earth is Simpson's third full-length album and follows his break-through, Grammy-nominated 2014 release, Metamodern Sounds In Country Music. Beloved by critics and fans, the record was featured on year-end best of lists at The New York Times, Rolling Stone, the Village Voices' Pazz and Jop, Rolling Stone Country, NPR Music, American Songwriter, Stereogum, the Los Angeles Times, KCRW, Pitchfork, The Washington Post and many others.
