I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive is the anticipated follow up to the Grammy® Award winning 2009 release “Townes.” The 11-track set was produced by T Bone Burnett and is Earle s first collection of original material since his 2007 Grammy® Award winning album, Washington Square Serenade. The album includes the celebrated song This City, written for the HBO Original Series, Treme, which Earle also appears in as an actor. This City features horn arrangements by Allen Toussaint and has garnered a Grammy® Award Nomination in the Best Song Written for Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media category. Other highlights include the ballad Every Part of Me and the ode to those who make their living on the The Gulf Of Mexico.
New and fourth LP Celebration, Florida is an exhilarating amalgamation of frightening horn sections, unexpected 808s, ambient synth lines, schoolyard taunts, booming, primitive drum beats, heavy bass lines, piano, violin, accordion, ringing guitars, rave beats, and sinister acid jazz that captivates and mystifies. Recorded in the library and theater of Beacon, NYs old high school, the band explores a multitude of sounds and instru-mentation throughout the expansive album. Its inspired, imaginative, heady, menacing, passionate, and rollicking. Most importantly, its as steadfastly authentic as ever, expanding upon the dark, woozy undercurrent of ramshackle barroom blues, vaudevillian atmospherics, and surreal storytelling of their previousalbums. Celebration, Florida revels in this inventive, outlaw spirit; its the sound of a band that knows its roots and knows where its growing. Its a group who just might expand the definition of Americana music along the way. Celebration, Florida casts scenes of dreamy characters and stories interwoven like a block of primetime TV. Among the tales: a young woman who sets off to find a secret paradise; a teenager who enters a boxing gym in Catskill, NY; a late night host recounting his rise to fame to his honeybee while traveling in a private jet and much more and beyond.

“I recorded killers and stars, by myself in the dining room of the house where i was living, in early March, 2001.

This release of the Alabama foursome’s 1999 sophomore record picks up where its debut album Gangstabilly (also re-issued by New West Records) left off–fruitful storyteller Patterson Hood and his cotton-drawl vocals bobbing and weaving through the trepidations and peculiarities of his life in the Deep South. The Truckers abstain from some of the white-trash bulls-eyes […]
