So not only are we getting a new Sturgill album but we also get an anime movie to go with it!
How do I say "Here for it" multiplied by infinity
LET'S GET IT YALL
He described the album as "sleazy" "steamy" "my heaviest" and "my most psychedelic"
Buckle up folks
An anime movie along with the album???????
The announcement press release really emphasizes that this is a rock album. That combined with the animated movie accompaniment has me SO curious.
How did I miss this?! Hell yeah, so game for new Sturgill.
Lol, country purists are pissed about this.
Too concerned with making art....as opposed to?????
Making country music, apparently.
isn’t half of the point of sturgill pissing off the country establishment haha? i feel like that’s been the “storyline” since he started talking about DMT on metamodern
I feel like that mindset is why country is stuck in its mold. Like in a genre full of dudes using the same vocal styles and melodies, why complain about someone doing something different?
I don’t think country is stuck in the mold you just described. Though I agree that mindset is ridiculous.
Maybe that’s the wrong way to put it and I’m articulating it poorly. I guess what I’m saying is that the genre needs people to try new things and that gatekeeping attitude just sucks in my opinion.
I wouldn’t say it’s stuck in its mold. It’s just kind of having an identity crisis, between the pop-country artists that really aren’t interested in maintaining fidelity to traditions, and the traditionalists who want everything to sound like Waylon and Merle. The former group has pushed the latter to be even more staunch in their rejection of anything that doesn’t fit their narrow view, which is why even artists that were once held up as pillars of authenticity by those folks (including Sturgill and Stapleton) get the “well, they’re not really country” criticism now. In truth, it’s a pretty vast and wide-reaching genre at the moment; some people just think only one corner of it is worth anything, and that one corner happens to be pretty much exclusively white and male.
Personally, I’ve always been more drawn to the artists like Sturgill that have clear country roots but are bringing other things into their art. And luckily for me, there are a lot of artists like that in country right now.
New song today.
I got a text from a friend telling me a country artist was releasing an anime film and I thought he was pulling my chain. I'm stoked for this.
Have you heard it?
can't wait for the Saving Country Music review* of this album
*the 1,200 word essay on whether this album "is country"
I have not!
