This new collection of songs was produced by Sturgill and David Ferguson and was recorded in Nashville at the Cowboy Arms Hotel and Recording Spa. Special guest Willie Nelson is the featured lead guitarist on the track & quot;Juanita & quot;. & lt;/p & gt; & lt;blockquote cite= & quot;www.pitchfork.com & quot; & gt; Dood and Juanita is unequal parts love story, history lesson, and action-adventure tale, a cross as classic as the sounds around it. Dood and Juanita works so well because Simpson sounds comfortable within this form and just beyond it. He harmonizes tenderly with his band above Stuart Duncan's sweet fiddle line during 'One in the Saddle, One on the Ground,' an ode to both mule and hound. 'Played Out' is an exceptional bluegrass ballad about bearing impossible burdens. And Simpson reaches bluegrass' nasal apogee during 'Go in Peace,' his voice expressing the same anxiety as Scott Vestal's restless banjo. For Simpson, this music is a return to terra firma, to land he knows innately. Listen, though, for the tiny surprises - the wailing harmonica and bounding jaw harp during 'Go in Peace,' the field recordings during 'Played Out,' the background bells and absurdist harmonies of 'Ol' Dood (Part I).' They're minutiae, sure, but they collectively suggest Simpson isn't content just to pick and grin. The entire record, after all, hinges on an exquisite Latin love song, complete with a discursive solo by Willie Nelson. It's the kind of modern bluegrass fantasy Simpson has not only the temerity to try but also the skills to accomplish... Is this the legitimate beginning of his bluegrass career, or just another detour for a songwriter who has mapped his career with them? The Ballad of Dood and Juanita makes that question especially tantalizing, since Simpson seems hellbent on bending the ideas of whatever genre he momentarily chooses, no matter how cloistered it seems. Bluegrass has long benefited from a lineage of weirdo rebels. Simpson fits right in, even if he might one day slip right out. & lt;footer & gt; -Grayson Haver Currin, Pitchfork & lt;/footer & gt; & lt;/blockquote & gt; & lt;a name= & quot;SS & quot; & gt; & lt;/a & gt; & lt;iframe width= & quot;560 & quot; height= & quot;315 & quot; src= & quot;https://www.youtube.com/embed/bO6N2clr3YU & quot; frameborder= & quot;0 & quot; allowfullscreen & gt; & lt;/iframe & gt; & lt;br & gt; & lt;br & gt; & lt;section id= & quot;features & quot; & gt; & lt;h3 & gt;Features & lt;/h3 & gt; & lt;ul & gt; & lt;li & gt;Vinyl LP & lt;/li & gt; & lt;/ul & gt; & lt;/section & gt; & lt;section id= & quot;selections & quot; & gt; & lt;h3 & gt;Selections & lt;/h3 & gt; & lt;ol & gt; & lt;li & gt;Prologue & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Ol' Dood (Part I) & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;One In The Saddle, One On The Ground & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Shamrock & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Played Out & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Sam & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Juanita (feat.

Sturgill Simpson Metamodern Sounds in Country Music LP (Vinyl)
& lt;font color= & quot;#FF0000 & quot; & gt; & lt;b & gt;Vinyl LP! Classic Country With Great Hooks! & lt;/b & gt; & lt;/font & gt; & lt;br & gt; & lt;br & gt; Sturgill Simpson isn’t one to rest on his laurels, which is why, less than a year after the release of his critically acclaimed debut, High Top Mountain, the singer-songwriter came out with his captivating and wholly unique sophomore album, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music. The album title – an allusion to Ray Charles’ groundbreaking 1962 record, Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music -- hints at the psychedelic sounds found within, a departure from Simpson’s first album, which drew comparisons to the music of Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard. & lt;br & gt; & lt;br & gt; & lt;b & gt; & quot;I think that there is a lot of room in country music for progression and sonic oscillation, which is what I wanted to explore. & quot; & lt;/b & gt; Where some artists find inspiration from other music, Simpson found his in books, devouring religious texts both ancient and modern, recent studies about discoveries in quantum physics and string theory, and publications by Carl Sagan and Terence McKenna. He also drew upon French filmmaker Gaspar Noe’s experimental drama Enter the Void as he created murky, multi-textured soundscapes that incorporate elements of classic country, bluegrass, rock, and even a bit of electronica, a genre that Simpson admits he has a “slight fetish” for & lt;br & gt; & lt;br & gt; & lt;b & gt; & quot;...he understands that good hooks hang on great rhythms and every sob story requires an uppercut punch line. & quot; & lt;/b & gt;-The Washington Post & lt;br & gt; & lt;br & gt; & lt;b & gt; & quot;...humbly fantastic. & quot; & lt;/b & gt; -SPIN & lt;br & gt; & lt;br & gt; & lt;b & gt; & quot;...this is GOOD COUNTRY...something I think any music lover (country or not) can appreciate. & quot; & lt;/b & gt; -My Old Kentucky Blog & lt;br & gt; & lt;br & gt; & lt;b & gt;Features: & lt;/b & gt; & lt;br & gt; • Vinyl LP & lt;br & gt; • Download Code & lt;br & gt; & lt;br & gt; & lt;b & gt;Selections: & lt;br & gt; Side 1: & lt;/b & gt; & lt;br & gt; 1.

Sturgill Simpson Cuttin' Grass - Vol. 1 (The Butcher Shoppe Sessions) 2LP (Vinyl)
& lt;header & gt; & lt;p & gt; & lt;strong & gt;Bluegrass Project On Double LP! & lt;br & gt; Reimagined Songs From Across Sturgill's Catalogue! & lt;br & gt; & quot;A Mixtape For The Fans & quot;! & lt;/strong & gt; & lt;/p & gt; & lt;/header & gt; & lt;header & gt; & lt;p & gt; & lt;strong & gt;2022 Grammy Award Nominee: & lt;/strong & gt; & lt;br & gt; & amp;#8226; Best Bluegrass Album: Cuttin' Grass - Vol. 1 (Butcher Shoppe Sessions) & lt;/p & gt; & lt;/header & gt; & lt;p & gt; & lt;strong & gt;2021 Americana Music Association Award Nominee For Album Of The Year! & lt;/strong & gt; & lt;/p & gt; & lt;p & gt;Since breaking through in 2014 with his Grammy nominated Metamodern Sounds In Country Music album, Sturgill Simpson has established himself as one of the most daring and most acclaimed artists of our time. His music stretches across genres and styles, from the psychedelic soul of 2016's A Sailor's Guide To Earth (Grammy nominated for Album of the Year and winner for Best Country Album) to the fuzzed-out rock attack of Sound & amp; Fury in 2019. Now Simpson returns to the music of his native Kentucky with his first bluegrass project, Cuttin' Grass - Vol. 1 (The Butcher Shoppe Sessions). The album, which he calls & quot;a mixtape for the fans, & quot; was dreamed up while he was recovering from Coronavirus, and sees him reimagining songs from across his catalogue backed by some of Nashville's finest acoustic virtuosos. & lt;/p & gt; & lt;p & gt; & lt;strong & gt; & quot;All the songs I've ever written were written on one guitar, my old Martin D-28, and sung in a fashion that's probably closer to bluegrass than to anything else, & quot; & lt;/strong & gt; Simpson explains. & lt;strong & gt; & quot;I had it in my mind for a long time that someday I want to cut as many of these songs as possible in this fashion, just organic and stripped down to the raw bones of the composition. If you can't sit down and play a song like that, it's probably a pretty shitty song. & quot; & lt;/strong & gt; & lt;/p & gt; & lt;p & gt;Cuttin' Grass was produced by Sturgill Simpson and Dave Ferguson, and features a bluegrass supergroup backing band including & lt;strong & gt;Mark Howard, Scott Vestal, Mike Bub, Tim O'Brien, Miles Miller, Stuart Duncan & lt;/strong & gt; and & lt;strong & gt;Sierra Hull & lt;/strong & gt;. & lt;/p & gt; & lt;blockquote cite= & quot;www.npr.org & quot; & gt; Simpson lovers will enjoy tracing the way this band's work both transforms and highlights what's great about Simpson's songs. The players he and Ferguson have gathered are Olympian in prowess, but graceful and flexible in the way they use their chops to adapt these songs. The big-band vibe of Simpson's Sailor's Guide ballad for his first-born son, 'All Around You,' becomes sweeter adhering to the patterns of a country waltz. The simmering ballad 'Just Let Go,' from Metamodern Sounds, gains swing from Stuart Duncan's fiddle and Sierra Hull's mandolin. 'Living the Dream,' a citified blues, goes rural under the guidance of banjoist Scott Vestal. The Kris Kristofferson-esque 'Turtles All the Way Down,' the signature song of his psychedelia-influenced phase, is now redolent of Bill Monroe - precise, but like a jazz dance, every step offering a little twist. & lt;footer & gt; -Ann Powers, NPR & lt;/footer & gt; & lt;/blockquote & gt; & lt;section id= & quot;features & quot; & gt; & lt;h3 & gt;Features & lt;/h3 & gt; & lt;ul & gt; & lt;li & gt;Double LP & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Gatefold jacket & lt;/li & gt; & lt;/ul & gt; & lt;/section & gt; & lt;section id= & quot;selections & quot; & gt; & lt;h3 & gt;Selections & lt;/h3 & gt; & lt;h4 & gt;Side A: & lt;/h4 & gt; & lt;ol & gt; & lt;li & gt;All Around You & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;All The Pretty Colors & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Breakers Roar & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;I Don't Mind & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;I Wonder & lt;/li & gt; & lt;/ol & gt; & lt;h4 & gt;Side B: & lt;/h4 & gt; & lt;ol & gt; & lt;li & gt;Just Let Go & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Life Ain't Fair And The World Is Mean & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;A Little Light & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Life Of Sin & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Long White Line & lt;/li & gt; & lt;/ol & gt; & lt;h4 & gt;Side C: & lt;/h4 & gt; & lt;ol & gt; & lt;li & gt;Living The Dream & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Old King Coal & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Railroad Of Sin & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Sitting Here Without You & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Sometimes Wine & lt;/li & gt; & lt;/ol & gt; & lt;h4 & gt;Side D: & lt;/h4 & gt; & lt;ol & gt; & lt;li & gt;The Storm & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Time After All & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Turtles All The Way Down & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Voices & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Water In A Well & lt;/li & gt; & lt;/ol & gt; & lt;/section & gt;

& lt;header & gt; & lt;p & gt; & lt;strong & gt;Second Installment Of Bluegrass Series On Vinyl LP! & lt;br & gt; Reinterpretations Of Songs From Sturgill's Catalogue! & lt;/strong & gt; & lt;/p & gt; & lt;/header & gt; & lt;p & gt;Just a few weeks after the surprise release of the Cuttin' Grass (Vol. 1): Butcher Shoppe Sessions album - which Uproxx called & lt;strong & gt; & quot;the most sublime and delightful music he's yet made on record & quot; & lt;/strong & gt; - Sturgill Simpson returns with the next installment of his bluegrass series, Cuttin' Grass (Vol. 2): The Cowboy Arms Sessions. & lt;/p & gt; & lt;p & gt;The genre-defying singer/songwriter reconvened an A-Team of acoustic players (now dubbed & quot;The Hillbilly Avengers & quot;) for another round of reinterpretations of his catalogue, this time largely focusing on 2016's A Sailor's Guide to Earth, which won the Grammy for Country Album of the Year and was nominated for Album of the Year. & lt;/p & gt; & lt;p & gt;This volume also includes & quot;Jesus Boogie & quot;, originally performed by Simpson's first band, Sunday Valley, and two previously unreleased songs, & quot;Tennessee & quot; and & quot;Hobo Cartoon & quot;, the latter of which was co-written with the incomparable & lt;strong & gt;Merle Haggard & lt;/strong & gt; - who once said that Simpson was & lt;strong & gt; & quot;about the only thing I've heard that was worth listening to in a long time. & quot; & lt;/strong & gt; & lt;/p & gt; & lt;blockquote cite= & quot;www.allmusic.com & quot; & gt; These tunes weather bluegrass interpretations very well, often sounding as if they were designed to be played this way, and they're buttressed with a clutch of earlier songs... It all adds up to a soulful and absorbing record, one that plays off the strengths of the Butcher Shoppe Sessions and deepens the entire bluegrass revisions project. & lt;footer & gt; -Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AllMusic.com, 4.5/5 stars & lt;/footer & gt; & lt;/blockquote & gt; & lt;section id= & quot;features & quot; & gt; & lt;h3 & gt;Features & lt;/h3 & gt; & lt;ul & gt; & lt;li & gt;Vinyl LP & lt;/li & gt; & lt;/ul & gt; & lt;/section & gt; & lt;section id= & quot;selections & quot; & gt; & lt;h3 & gt;Selections & lt;/h3 & gt; & lt;h4 & gt;Side A: & lt;/h4 & gt; & lt;ol & gt; & lt;li & gt;Call To Arms & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Brace For Impact (Live A Little) & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Oh Sarah & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Sea Stories & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Hero & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Welcome To Earth (Pollywog) & lt;/li & gt; & lt;/ol & gt; & lt;h4 & gt;Side B: & lt;/h4 & gt; & lt;ol & gt; & lt;li & gt;Jesus Boogie & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Keep It Between The Lines & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;You Can Have The Crown & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Tennessee & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Some Days & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Hobo Cartoon & lt;/li & gt; & lt;/ol & gt; & lt;/section & gt;
