Vinyl LP! Classic Country With Great Hooks!

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 came 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

"...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
