If you haven’t signed up to Daytrotter for a measly $2 a month then you are missing out on a whole host of recent gems from Sic Alps, Washed Out, Bombay Bicycle Club, Terry Malts and Kathleen Edwards amongst others. But none more so than the session on the 13th February from grizzled outlaw country genius Ray Wylie Hubbard.
Amongst the four outstanding tracks was this version of Drunken Poet’s Dream from 2010 album A. Enlightenment B. Endarkenment (Hint: There is no C). This is truly a master of his craft.
“I got a woman who’s wild as wrong
She likes being naked and gazed upon
She crosses a bridge, she sets it on fire
She lands like a bird on a telephone wire
I’m gonna holler and I’m gonna scream
I’m gonna get some mescaline
And then I’m gonna rhyme that with gasoline
It’s a drunken poet’s dream.”
Download it. Listen to it.
