Patterson Hood and band are back with their tenth studio release, but this time Mike Cooley, "the George Harrison of the Drive-By Truckers", is much more prominent with his originals, having penned 6 of the 13 here.

On the Spindale Cycle this week we celebrate the birthday of George Harrison (2/25/1943)with a sampling of his successful 1970 album, All Things Must Pass. It features the hit single "My Sweet Lord", as well as songs like "Isn't It a Pity" that were turned down by Harrison's former band, the Beatles. Join Sander for some memories.
One of our favorite bands of these last few years, Lake Street Dive is back. We've loved seeing them progress since they first met at the New England Conservatory of Music. They brought their blend of jazz, R&B, and pop to the Colbert Report recently, they bring it back to our area for live shows this week, and we'll bring Bad Self Portraits your way Thursday night.
