Drive-By Truckers “The Big To-Do”

April 23, 2010

For those of you scoring at home, this is record number 10. Maybe the hair is thinning a little bit, but not much else has changed. They still sound like Soul Asylum’s cooler younger brother. “Daddy Learned to Fly” reminds you of a time when Democratic presidents weren’t automatically considered socialists and instead were just fucking their interns.
“Birthday Boy” puts the Wallflowers to shame. It’s the same rooty-toot guitar, but with more texture and even soul. It’s a perfect microcosm of a band who has generally stayed just outside the glare of the spotlight. You can’t help but feel good about this act.
“The Wig He Made Her Wear” is one of the better ones. It tells a fun story about what has to be done before sex and why these things are important.
Shonna Tucker gets her time in the son as well. “You Got Another” shows a remarkably strong voice and heretofore unheard piano. The rest of the record is good too, although it does start to sound the same after a while. That’s what Drive-By Truckers do, though. This much-anticipated album will not disappoint.
