The follow-up to 2011’s Go-Go Boots, English Oceans is the 12th studio effort from Drive-By Truckers. The album was recorded in under two weeks in Athens, Ga. with the band’s longtime producer David Barbe. According to the band, the songwriting duties were split evenly between co-founders Mike Cooley, who brought six new songs to the album, and Patterson Hood.
For this record, Drive-By Truckers used a reconstructed unit, enlisting the help of Jay Gonzalez, who joined the band in 2008, and bassist Matt Patton from Tuscaloosa-based band The Dexateens. “It’s a very tasteful group, and when it needs to be it can be a very big, powerful, over-the-top band, too, and it can go from one to the other seamlessly,” Hood said in a press release.
