Out today, the new one from Southern Culture On The Skids. And let me just say, this is a good ol' good one! I went twice around the park with this baby yesterday and I'm ready to dive in again today. It is their best since "Liquored Up & Lacquered Down."
The opener "Call Me" finds Rick Miller wasting away, filling out forms while the sun shines and he runs out of beer. Nothing but bad news, so just call him! He's around, just hunkerin' down. It's 12 months along since he played some songs, so call him! I cannot get this one out of my head.
And then comes the one and only Mary Huff with the first cover of the day, a perfect SCOTS take on Nancy Sinatra's "Sugar Town."
"Polka Dot Dress" is so damn funky, Ike Turner woke up just to say, "Shit, that's funky." Thankfully, that's all he did.
Look, you need this record. Yeah, I'm excited. But isn't that what music is supposed to do? Thank heavens for Southern Culture On The Skids. Just in time!
Oh, they cover "Dear Mr. Fantasy." And a banjo is involved. And it's genius.
