iTunes Review

With a classic country voice that often recalls Waylon Jennings and downtrodden lyrics that give Townes Van Zandt a run for most miserable, Sturgill Simpson is emerging as a major talent in a country music field far too jammed with singers who’d rather be leading ‘80s pop-metal bands. Produced by his trusted collaborator Dave Cobb (Jamey Johnson, Jason Isbell) and recorded live to tape at Nashville’s LCS studio over four days in late 2013, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music is a potential candidate for ‘Country Album of the Year.’ Simpson’s touring band brings the songs to lean, mean life, while Simpson’s lyrics ride the existential edge. “Living The Dream” proclaims “I’ve been going through the motions / It’s a means to an end but the ends don’t seem to meet,” before mirroring Van Zandt’s realization that he’s got nothing to do but “sit around and wait to die.” Not that Simpson is without humor. He thanks the woman who haunted his memories in “Life of Sin.”

Formerly the leader of Sunday Valley, an energetic roots outfit that made some waves in the early years of the new millennium, Sturgill Simpson gained greater renown as a solo artist, initially thanks to his muscular 2013 solo debut High Top Mountain. An outlaw country record in form and feel -- its debt to Waylon Jennings clear and unashamed -- High Top Mountain became a word-of-mouth hit in 2013, thereby establishing Simpson's country credentials and opening the door to a wider future.
