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”:

Dr. John – “Revolution”

I’m blown away by how freakin’ cool this sounds. Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys produced Dr. John’s new record…and that influence can be heard all over this track. Locked Down officially comes out on April 3rd. And this single sure does get me excited to hear the rest:
