Among these shows are versions of two of my all-time favorite songs:

Women Without Whiskey

Panties in Your Purse

and a great cover:

Behind Closed Doors

Good stuff!

New Drive-By Truckers: Hear it Now!

dbt

It’s a great day when you get to hear some new music by the best band in America- the Drive-By Truckers.

CMT (ironic, I know) is streaming full tracks of the DBT’s forthcoming record, Brighter than Creation’s Dark.  I had to fire-up Internet Explorer to get the player to work, but that’s a small price to pay.  I’m listening right now, and so far it sounds like another excellent record.

Rolling Stone gave it 4 stars.  Here’s Twangville’s take.
