In the Spotlight: Drive-by Truckers: English Oceans

EnglishOceans

by Cat Johnson

18 years and 10 albums in, the Drive-by Truckers are still at it, and more importantly, still bringing interesting stories full of down-and-out characters, love gone wrong (and sometimes right) and everyman tales of life in the South.

English Oceans, however, sees the band calming things down a bit, spending more time on the musical subtleties and less on the window-shattering arena rock jams. It also sees Mike Cooley, ever the sideman to Patterson Hood, bringing more songs and vocals to the table.

Here’s a trailer with snips of songs and some great footage of the band in lo-fi action.
