Michael Daves: Orchids and Violence (Nonesuch, 2016).
A concept record in that he plays 12 songs in a bluegrass style and then plays the same 12 songs electric. And man the bluegrass record is pretty kicking. He sings the hell out of the tunes and the band is smoking.
As for the electric versions I was really into the guitar sounds at first — kinda classic and modern at the same time. Big and trippy but rhythmically it drags. If the drummer rocked the kit hard I woulda put this double disc on the best of year list.
It’s still a fine piece of music just spend more time with the bluegrass.
