Fixin' To Die
Released: Feb 2011
Label: Brushfire Records/Universal
Fixin' to Die is a nice change of pace for the funky urban bard known as G. Love. Though billed as a solo effort (none of that Special Sauce), the record is really a collaboration with indie-Americana darlings The Avett Brothers, who serve as both producers and backing band. Their influence is immediately identifiable. This is G. Love's stab at crafting a real-deal folk album, a collection of country ballads and irreverent romps steeped in the Piedmont blues. The only track that feels out of place is a cover of Paul Simon's "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" that sounds like Jason Mraz.
