Sturgill Simpson Sound & Fury

Sturgill Simpson just released his latest album Sound & Fury, on which he continues to blend country with psychedelic influences and push the boundaries of music. Both Jim and Greg are enthusiastic about Simpson's fourth album, and can't get enough of the dramatic sonic elements like cranking the guitar way up and the Can-like instrumentals. The lyrics are also important, as Simpson shares his experience of clashing with the country music industry and more universal themes like the environment and today's political climate. Greg thinks that it would wrong if critics left this album off their“best of year”lists at the end of 2019.
