Simpson, Sturgill

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Simpson, Sturgill - Metamodern Sounds In Country Music Metamodern Sounds In Country Music
Country New - LP HTM002 High Top Mountain
Sealed 2014 Original. “Sturgill Simpson Won Many Fans With His 2013 Debut Album, High Top Mountain. It Is Unapologetic In Its Evocation Of '70s Outlaw Country. For His Sophomore Date, He And His Band Entered A Nashville Studio With Producer/Engineer Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell), And Cut Metamodern Sounds In Country Music Live-To-Tape In Four Days. These Songs And Their Production Values, Though Immediately Reconizable, Are More Varied And Textured Than Those Of His Debut--There's No Pedal Steel Here For One Thing. The Waylon Jennings-Esque Quality In Simpson's Singing Voice Remains, But That's Built In. His Songwriting And Confidence Have Grown Exponentially.” – Thom Jurek, AMG... more details

Simpson, Sturgill - A Sailor's Guide To Earth A Sailor's Guide To Earth
Pop Used - LP 551380-1 Atlantic
2016 Gatefold Original LP On 180gm Vinyl In Custom Inner Sleeve, Which Includes Lyrics And Song Credits. Also Includes CD Copy. Vinyl Is Glossy, Virtually Unplayed. “After Nearly Two Decades Of Alternative Country Doubling Down On Po-Faced Authenticity Where Simpler Was Better, Simpson Embraced Indulgence, Pushing New Wave, Psychedelia, And Digital-Age Saturation, All In An Attempt To Add The Cosmic Back Into American Music. A Sailor's Guide To Earth Goes One Step Further: It's An Old-Fashioned Concept Album, One That Tells A Story -- It's A Letter To His Newborn Son, Telling Him How To Become A Man -- And Is Dressed In Garish Art Suited To The Side Of A Chevy Van. The Overarching Aesthetics Are A Throwback To The Golden Age Of Vinyl But Simpson Is Too Smart To Succumb To Mere Revivalism: He Seeks To Expand, Not Retract. To That End, He'll Posit That Nirvana's "In Bloom" Exists On A Continuum That Runs Back Toward Glen Campbell's Renditions Of Jimmy Webb Tunes, Which Hints At How, For As Steeped In The '70s As A Sailor's Guide To Earth Is, Simpson Doesn't Limit His Prog To Merely Rock. He's Equally Attracted To The Symphonic Haze Of Progressive Folk And The Boundary-Blurring Soul Of Muscle Shoals, Using Its Thick Swathes Of Horns And Smears Of Slide Guitar As Binding Agents In Songs That Occasionally Need To Be Pulled Together. Blame That On Simpson Sometime Prioritizing The Journey Over The Destination. He's Certainly Not Indifferent To Songs -- Strong Ones Punctuate The Voyage, Ones That Veer Closer To Soul Than Country -- But He Cherishes The Voyage, So There Are Times When A Sailor's Guide To Earth Threatens To Float Away On A Slipstream Of Strings And Melodies That Are Heartfelt And Hookless. Even At These Moments, His Ambition Remains Ingratiating: He Might Not Quite Arrive Precisely Where He Intended, But As He Makes It So Clear Throughout The Album, What Matters Is The Journey Itself.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG.... more details
