The storytelling of Patterson Hood, songwriter/frontman for The Drive-by Truckers is nothing less than an immaculate portrait of the sprawling, family, political drama of life in America. “Uncle Phil & Aunt Phyllis In The Month After The Election” is complete with betrayal, transformation, pharmaceuticals and ass-biting dogs. Hood’s first solo album, Murdering Oscar is recently out and there’s a bonus track included on the Vinyl edition which has been available around the blogosphere. Was listening this morning while at work and couldn’t help laughing my ass off on several occasions. The subtle delivery and the understated accompaniment make for a tragi-comic blues scape from the American South. Dig it. Read a great post and get the mp3 from Stereogum.
