Gomez - “Airstream Driver”
This song, from Gomez’s sixth record A New Tide, shows the expanse of their musical talents, pulling in blues, catchy pop melodies, and quirky indie rock sounds. Despite finding success with their first two releases Bring It On and Liquid Skin, they have bounced around between labels before landing on Dave Matthews’ ATO Records, which is also home to Dawes, the Drive By Truckers, Danny Barnes, and My Morning Jacket.
Drive-By Truckers - “(It’s Gonna Be) I Told You So”
This track, from the Drive-By Truckers’ latest The Big To Do, highlights the songwriting and singing of bassist Shonna Tucker. Though the band hails from Athens, Georgia, most of the members are from Alabama, and this song shows the Muscle Shoals influence, with a lot of rock and roll thrown in as well.
