Philadelphia 2016 [no label, 1CD]
WXPN World Café Live, Special Producers Session, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; November 8, 2016. Very good audio (ripped from HD webcast).
On September 30, 2016, Drive-By Truckers released their 11th studio album, American Band, where the group tackles “social and political issues with firebrand zeal. Racism, immigration, gun violence, hate symbols and censorship all get their turn in the crosshairs of the band, fronted by Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley. But the record isn’t driven by unfocused anger: It’s a poignant take on what it means to be an American in a time when uncertainty and fear are omnipresent. As Hood says, he hopes to ‘turn on that light in the basement and see what’s scampering so we can figure out what we’re dealing with’.”
