The Drive-By Truckers' Brighter Than Creation's Dark has been in heavy rotation at CSD headquarters for the past few weeks. We admit that we're a little late to the party in regards to these guys, but better late than never - they sound a little bit like The Allman Brothers crossed with early John Mellencamp crossed with Darkness On the Edge of Town, the songwriting and singing is nicely balanced among three fantastic singer/songwriters who each have a unique style, and full-scale southern rock instrumentation including hearty portions of slide guitar, piano and band. Sprinkled throughout their catalogue, like cherries atop hot fudge sundaes - are hilarious and kick-ass song titles like "Daddy Needs A Drink," "Too Much Sex, Too Little Jesus," "You and Your Crystal Meth," "Home Field Advantage" and "Dead, Drunk and Naked."
We'll be posting more of their stuff over the next couple of weeks, but here's a little something to get you started:
"A Ghost To Most"
