Speed of Life
Label: NGDB Records, LLC
These Nitty Grittys deserve more respect! Hipsters like Gram Parsons get all the credit for inventing country-rock, yet the N.G.D.B has been exploring the crossroads of rock, folk, country and bluegrass for nearly 50 years. Amazing. Speed of Life is like the band's 89th album. With a warm, organic sound, it harks back to the group's mid-1970s peak. We're talking classic hippie Americana recorded for the 21st century. Check out the killer bluegrass cover of Canned Heat's "Going Up the Country."
