Drive-By Truckers - Your Woman Is A Living Thing download mp3 album
Decoration Day is a rock album released by Drive-By Truckers in 2003. The album was recorded mostly live over two weeks at Chase Park Transduction Studios in Athens, Georgia, and was produced by noted producer and former Sugar bassist David Barbe. The album is the Truckers' fifth, including their live album Alabama Ass Whuppin', following the critically acclaimed Southern Rock Opera.
Drive-By Truckers (l-r): Matt Patton, Brad Morgan, Patterson Hood, Mike Cooley, Jay Gonzalez. On the band's eleventh studio album, American Band, the Drive-By Truckers (now consisting of Hood and Cooley, drummer Brad Morgan, keyboardist Jay Gonzalez, and bassist Matt Patton) are proving once again that the personal and the political are inseparable. There's a particular urgency to the album, one that holds a mirror up to our current time rather than attempting to process our collective past. It's not just a thematic shift that the Drive-By Truckers have pursued-they've also progressed visually. American Band is the first album since 1999's Pizza Deliverance not to feature artwork by Wes Freed, whose ghoulish designs invoke Southern mythology-what Flannery O'Connor once described as "the Christ-haunted South.
Your Woman is A Living Thing"/"Just Maybe" is the only record the Drive-By Truckers have released solely in a vinyl format. Drive-By Truckers backed up Booker T. Jones on his instrumental album Potato Hole, which was released on April 21, 2009. Neil Young also contributed over-dubbed guitar work to the album; the Drive-By Truckers and he never met in studio. Potato Hole features a re-recording of the Cooley penned track "Space City", which originally was released on the album A Blessing And A Curse.
Considering that the Drive-By Truckers have released two more studio albums since the last disc represented here, and they continue to slowly but surely keep building an audience, Ugly Buildings, Whores and Politicians: Greatest Hits 1998-2009 is by no means a definitive look at the band's body of work, but as a survey of their formative years, it's great. Incidentally, that clumsy-sounding title is a reference to a line uttered by John Huston in the film Chinatown: "Politicians, ugly buildings and whores all get respectable if they last long enough.
1. 5. Ever South Lyrics. We packed our few belongings and we moved across the ocean To start a new life in this land so bold and vast Dispersed from Ellis Island, my distant Irish kin Eyes cut to the future, heart’s tied to the past. We held tight to our loved ones and we held on to the promise And we scraped our meager living hand to mouth We prayed to what would have us, every doubting John Thomas Spreading through the Appalachia ever south Spread through Appalachia ever south
shot him in his tracks Well I guess that means that you ain't black It means that you ain't black I mean Barack Obama won And you can choose where to eat But you don't see too many white kids lying Bleeding on the street. Astrophysics at our fingertips And we're standing at the summit And some man with a joystick Lands a rocket on a comet We're living in an age Where limitations are forgotten The outer edges move and dazzle us But the core is something rotten And we're standing on the precipice Of prejudice and fear We trust science just.
Any Drive By Truckers deserters will have missed out on their former favourite band's most streamlined and forceful album to date. Meanwhile, "Ever South" is decorated by that most un-DBT of things - a synth line - while finding a new spin on the Southern thing; a reminder that America is a place where everyone's trying to "lasso brighter futures," regardless of where you or your ancestors originaly came from. American Band" is Drive-By Truckers' eleventh record and, while it couldn't be by any other band, in many ways, it's an outlier
