The album touches on everything from racial tensions to gun violence and political fear-mongering. More on that a little later, though. The Athens, Georgia-born band has been together for two decades, building a devoted following almost entirely through non-stop touring. Whether critically labeled as southern rock, Americana, or alternative country, the band is unrivaled in its detail-laden portrait of the American South. Often opting to skip go-to themes of personal longing or romantic heartbreak, the Truckers have become masters of musical character studies.
Embittered ex-cops, struggling farmers, low-level drug dealers, lonely housewives, traumatized war vets, and dozens of other hard-luck characters litter their songs.
Happy stories are rare. So there. English Oceans all by itself is a great album click the link above for further ravings and worth the price of admission here.
Home Rock Drive-By Truckers. Product Details On February 12th, , we planned an intimate private 'dress rehearsal' show to premiere the songs from our brand new album "English Oceans" in front of a small live audience of friends. The plan was to film and record the performance for use in promoting the album. It sums up "American Band" as much as it does the state of the few true believers left in the States, though after November 8th, who's to say what comfort Drive-By Truckers and their fans are going to be able to take from that rallying cry.
Recorded in the thick of the US presidential primaries, it's also the first Drive-By Truckers album to take place almost entirely in the present tense. A soulful ballad towards the end of the LP emphasises the futility of banning art in times of crisis, summing up the Iraqi invasion with heartbreaking simplicity: "Once they banned 'Imagine', it became the war it was when we were kids.
Cooley's compellingly anthemic opener "Ramon Casiano" bucks the trend by excavating a news story from the thirties in which a teenage Mexican boy was shot by a white man who went on to become head of the NRA.
The story itself is old, but its message "It all started with a border, and that's still where it is today" runs the opening line is as current as ever, while the decision to title the song after the victim but never once name his killer has poignant parallels with the post-Black Lives Matter saytheirname movement.
