Fine Listen: Drive-By Truckers

In my stint at Billy Reid I got hooked on Drive-By Truckers.  For some reason it takes a few listens to get it, but once you do you will realize they are probably the best Americana roots rock around since Uncle Tupelo. Today their new album comes out called The Big To-Do, but in my opinion newbies should seek out their 2008 album Brighter Than Creation’s Dark for their a nice introduction.  They also have a killer version of Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone” if you can find it.  Check out a few of their videos below.

Here they are on Letterman last Friday night singing their new song This F*cking Job. Rumor has it they stopped by Billy Reid on Bowery before the show and got suited up for the show.

The Righteous Path performed at Austin City Limits. A great song from Brighter Than Creations Dark

Not a video, but this is one of my favorite songs, just great story telling of the south, so haunting. From their first critically acclaimed album Southern Rock Opera awesome album title as well.
