Firing on all cylinders, Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley of Drive-By Truckers zipped over to the KEXP studio to play a couple of their songs off their newest album, English Oceans. With an eight-string, robust Kay Vintage guitar and silvery crooning, the two displayed their stripped-down prowess, illustrating not only the group's talented guitarists, but also the great degree of friendship between the band's members. Known for acquiring their solid fan-base by touring almost non-stop and producing albums about every two years, Drive-By Truckers are some of the hardest working musicians around. So, whether it be their Alabama-inspired hymnals, or foot-tappin' country jam-band aesthetic, the group never stops entertaining, amusing, and reawakening our spirits to an aural experience altogether uncharted. Check it out here, because you wont find this on your CB Radio:
