SONG: Dr. John

“Big Shot”

Dr. John, with producer Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys), have really nailed a vibe and sound on their new album Locked Down. It’s gritty and swanky…smooth and cutting all at once. There’s a vintage sound, but it’s so new and fresh at the same time. Gabe Soria may say it best in the liner notes:

“…this is Locked Down. It’s an invitation to do a dirty grind in a backroom bar at 3am and a call to go to church the next day; it’s a fierce burst of salvation and an apocalyptic warning; it’s a seductive com-on and an initiation; it’s candle-burning jams rubbing shoulders with ecstatic odes to the great mystery.”

Here’s one of my favorite tracks, “Big Shot”:
