Sturgill Simpson – In Bloom
A country cover of a Nirvana song. Yes, please. With a robust string and wind section in addition to the pedal steel, this one is all feeling.
Bronze Radio Return – Light Me Up
My favourite kind of chorus – big and driving.
Selig – Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door
This one’s from 1997 but I hadn’t heard it until recently. Good stuff.
Los Lobos – Come On, Let’s Go
How can you not dance along to this one?
Steve Earle – Copperhead Road
I feel like I’ve turned a corner with this one in my exploration of country music. This is serious stuff and I like it.
