DBT Week in Review - 9/10/10


Happy belated birthday to Emmett Hood. 1 year and 1 day in this fancy world.


This is the place from whence I was born and raised. Hardly recognize it. Maybe someday Florence/The Shoals can be considered Athens - West.


10 Giants of Southern Rock Guitar:
"With their heady mix of fuzzed-up riff rock, rootsy acoustic shuffles and Crazy Horse-like excursions into the wild blue yonder, the Drive-By Truckers offer up an especially ambitious brand of southern rock. Favoring SGs and Gold Top Deluxes, frontman Patterson Hood generally tunes down a whole step in order to achieve the Truckers’ distinctive sound. The band’s sprawling 2001 opus, Southern Rock Opera, paid conscious tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Allmans, and the Marshall Tucker Band."

His mouth may not speak Spanish, but his guitar sure does. Cooley fucking dominates this guitar solo:

Film Review: The Secret to a Happy Ending at Northwest Film Forum:
"Drive-By Truckers is a musical family affair; not just because inspired leader singer/songwriter Patterson Hood is the son of extremely supportive Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section bass player David Hood, or the fact that he has been collaborating with fellow Shoals, North Alabama vocalist/guitarist Mike Cooley for decades. DBT is an extended filial force driven by a web of affection and responsibility within the band — which also includes another vivid vocalist and tunesmith, Jason Isbell, married to bass player Shannon Tucker; and longtime drummer Brad Morgan — and a deep connection to their fans."

A hidden gem, ‘That Evening Sun’ has the ring of authenticity | |

1. Drool. 2. This is such a great song, one that should make LL rich and famous.

I like the cut of this ladies jib.

Jeff Pollack: The Music Industry's New Model: Where Is It?
"Individual artist apps aren't 2009, some of the major labels rolled out apps for a few of their largest artists built largely around exclusive access to video content, mainly performance clips, promotional items, and behind-the-scenes peeks. But that simply is not enough; there has to a more unique offering to entice real fan engagement. Artists can only generate real revenue from apps on a long-term basis if the fan is getting something they deem valuable.

So, the battle to discover the new model continues on all fronts as the realization sinks in that the answer surely will be a combination of ideas (such as bundled subscriptions, cool artist apps, compelling fan experiences), not one magic solution. One thing won't be the answer, everything will be."
