Raised on rock-and-roll and trained in Kentucky bluegrass, the Blind Corn Liquor Pickers have been living on the ragged edge of the genre for over a decade now, playing what one critic has dubbed “revisionist bluegrass”. On Myths & Routines, their fourth album, electric guitar and drums are added to the bluegrass-y mix, pulling the sound even further from the traditional shore. It’s the songwriting, though, that continues makes this band stand apart. Recorded at Shangri-la Studios in Lexington, KY under the guiding hand of engineer Duane Lundy (Ben Sollee, Jim James, Vandaveer, These United States), Myths & Routines is the newest revision for this revisionist bluegrass band, one that may end up meeting the folk-leaning indie rock world somewhere in the middle.
