I’ll be honest, I heard this on the radio last week sans context (no idea who it was) and it sounded like any other generic country song on the radio, which is to say Not Very Good. I like some of the stuff this guy does, but I don’t get what makes this particular song better than anything else on country radio.
But Sturgill Simpson…. I can get behind that guy.
Ambulance LTD <3 — so good, so underrated, so unknown. Great list and retrospective!
“Pretty Machines” is INCREDIBLE. That guitar line would make Julian Casablancas jealous. And the saxophones? Yep. Yep.
Thanks for this. Sad that it even needs to be said, but it needs to be fucking said.
Everyone realizes that this is an Arrested Development reference and that Forget-Me-Now Pills are roofies, which is exactly what he slipped her, yes?
Anyway, this kind of stuff is depressing as hell, and if he’s guilty (wouldn’t surprise me at all) I hope he rots in fucking prison.
This is great. Her sound is one of those that I really connect with for whatever reason. This SOUNDS really wonderful, too, even with K. Parker not at the production controls.
See, I was thinking At Least That’s What You Said was sorely missing.
Wilco has too many great songs. Incredible that they’re including 38 (!) tracks and pretty much anyone can still say, “Well, what about _____!?”
This is shitty news, no way around it.
This is, no kidding, absolutely incredible. I would kill for an entire album of covers like this.
I think I love this narrative.
