Guess Who’s Back?

Posted: March 27, 2016 by nickd0913 in Uncategorized

It has been a minute since I have posted anything to BDS.  Things have been hectic in the ATL over the past few months but that is no excuse.  I am sure in my absence the quality of music you have been listening to has gone right in the shitter.  The good news is I am back and so is my impeccable taste in all things music.  So let’s get started and let me turn you on to some things I am into right now.

 

  1. Southern Family

You may or may not know who Dave Cobb is.  For those of you who do not know, he is the hottest producer in Nashville.  He has produced records by Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, Anderson East, Jamey Johnson, Chris Stapleton and Shooter Jennings to just name a few.  His latest project is the album titled “Southern Family”.  It is a compilation album of some of the best musicians in music right now.  Jason Isbell, Miranda Lambert, Holly Williams, Morgane and Chris Stapleton, Rich Robinson, Anderson East, and Shooter Jennings among others.  This album is everything that is right with Country/Americana music today.  Give it a listen.

Check out a quick video about the making of the best song on the album.

 

2. My Favorite Album

I am not even sure how I stumbled upon this podcast but I love it.  It is done by some Australian dude named Jeremy Dylan who interviews people about their favorite albums.  He has well over 100 episodes where he interviews people like Benmont Tench, Will Hoge, Jason Isbell, Dave Cobb, and Kacey Musgraves about their favorite albums.  If you are a music nerd and like hearing what musicians have to say about their favorite albums this is a great listen.

   3. Sturgill Simpson

I saw this guy in concert back in January and it immediately became one of the top 5 concerts I have ever seen in my life.  It was the final show on his tour and he went out with a bang.  Before he launched into his final song which was about a 10 minute jam he said “This is the last show of the mother fucking tour and we are going to burn this bitch down”.  One of the greatest endings to any concert I have ever seen.  Simpson has a new album coming out in about 3 weeks and I cannot wait to get my hands on it.  The album is titled “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth” and if the first single is a hint at what the rest of the album could sound like then I am sure the album will be just as great as his first two albums.  Check out the first single “Brace For Impact (Live a Little)”.

 

 

4. Sarah Borges – Good and Dirty

I live in Atlanta which means I spend a lot of time in my car stuck in traffic.  That gives me plenty of time to listen to my favorite radio station on satellite radio which is Outlaw Country.  I cannot begin to tell you how many bands I have discovered by listening to that station.  My latest find is Sarah Borges.  I do not know anything about her but I know I love her new album called “Good and Dirty”.  It is only 5 songs but it packs quite a punch of straight forward rock and roll.  If you need to be sold on her feel free to check out the video for “Tendency to Riot” and then go bust the album for yourself.

 

 

5. Cayamo Sessions at Sea – Buddy Miller & Friends

Buddy Miller is one of the most respected musicians in Nashville, he also is the musical director for the TV show “Nashville” and hosts a show on Outlaw Country with Jim Lauderdale.  He has played with everyone in Nashville at some point.  Last year he recorded 11 songs with various musicians while on the Cayamo Cruise.  The Cayamo Cruise is basically cruise loaded with with Americana musicians playing concerts for about a week in the middle of January.  I will probably never get to go on the cruise so this album will be as close as I get.  Here is a great sample of what you can hear on the cruise and the album.
