Sturgill Simpson Listening PartyHear Country auteur Sturgill Simpson’s A Sailor’s Guide to Earth (out April 15th on CD, vinyl, and blue vinyl) at Amoeba SF on Friday, April 8th at 5pm -- a week before release date! Enter to win special limited edition t-shirts, canvas tote bags, and more! Plus, partake in some Sturgill cake! What's Sturgill cake? You'll just have to come on down to Amoeba SF and find out.

A Sailor’s Guide to Earth spans the globe, musically and lyrically. Sail through diverse musical waters with Simpson, across styles and genres, with stops in Motor City and Music Row, Harlem and Stax, Berlin and London. He combines '70s Motown soul, R&B, classic rock, and some of that good ol' Nashville countrypolitan sound. Did we mention his haunting cover of Nirvana's "In Bloom," because we'd be remiss if we didn't. It's certainly something only a soulful and complex country performer like Simpson could pull off with flying colors, complete with down-home fiddle and Stax-style brass.
