The Big To-Do (Explicit)

The Big To-Do by Drive-By Truckers
Released: Jul 2013
Label: Ato Records
Though ostensibly the Truckers' return to straight-ahead rock, this album will win no drag races: Five of Patterson Hood's eight high-pitched contributions approach or exceed five minutes, and they take their drowsy time getting there. But Crazy Horse distortion adds beauty and viscosity, and four-day binges, perverted preachers, bodies in the lake and a trapeze accident in Detroit provide compelling subject matter. The underutilized Mike Cooley scores with a two-stepping unemployment boogie woogie, some choogling murk about a bad birthday at a brothel and parting advice from a sad dad.
