Drive-By Truckers bring you their eleventh record, GO-GO BOOTS, which was produced by their longtime producer David Barbe (Deerhunter, Betty LaVette, Sugar). GO-GO BOOTS builds on their roots with the old Muscle Shoals country-and-soul sound. “We recorded nearly 40 songs last year and into this year and fairly early on divided it into two separate albums” explains DBT co-founder Patterson Hood. “THE BIG TO-DO, released first, was the more straightforward Rock album. GO-GO BOOTS is what I sometimes (semi-jokingly) refer to as our country, soul, and murder ballad album. Those elements definitely play into it, but it’s a little more open ended than that.” Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley continue to be the chief songwriters of the group, continuing a musical partnership that has lasted over twenty-three years.
