It ain’t came yet

Saturday, 24 May, 2014

“Well, I been spendin’ all my money on weed an’ pills, tryin’ to write a song that’ll pay the bills but it ain’t came yet.” So sings Sturgill Simpson, a true heir to the rebellious tradition of Haggard and Jennings. “Guess I’ll have to rob a bank,” concludes Simpson about the failure of the songwriting muse to appear. The Kentucky-born singer’s got a new album, Metamodern Sounds In Country Music, and Mark Lore had this to say about it in Paste: “If you don’t like country music, don’t bother. But if you do have an ear for Waylon and Willie and the boys, then you’ll find plenty to love. Simpson may reside in Nashville these days, but he’s operating on a completely different plane.”
