Sound & Fury (LP)
With a name like Sound & Fury, you’re gonna get exactly what you expect. On his latest, Sturgill Simpson’s driving the outlaw country highway at 90 mph, about to make a sharp right into raucous rock ’n’ roll territory. Of course, with a name that's also the title of a Faulkner novel, there's plenty of Southern-steeped lyricism, themes, and atmosphere to be found beneath the wailing guitars and pounding drums. Nobody does it like Sturgill Simpson and Sound & Fury is one heady hell of a ride.
