When my favorite band puts out a new record, I'm constitutionally obligated to post about it here. Old 97's follow up their rollicking 2014 release, 'Most Messed Up', with 'Graveyard Whistling' on February 24. Based on the title, and the first single, Good With God, this set of tracks may well have a darker edge than many.
Seems fitting, given the age in which we live.
Here's Good With God, featuring Brandi Carlile. It's got the now-familiar Old 97's guitar sound, persistent and driving, and Rhett Miller's wry turn of phrase, but it's somehow ominous in a way that we haven't heard from the 97's in a while.
