The legendary Atlanta indie rockers Drivin' N' Cryin invite listeners to "Roll Away the Song" with their latest vinyl-only release, Best of Songs.
Between June 2012 and January 2014, the reputable Atlanta indie rock outfit Drivin' N' Cryin' released four EPs: Songs From the Laundromat, Songs About Cars, Space and the Ramones; Songs From the Psychedelic Time Clock; and Songs for the Turntable. The band's newest collection, the forthcoming vinyl release Best of Songs, brings these EPs together, a spin on the aesthetic of the ’70s-vintage K-tel greatest hits album. The cover even looks slightly faded, as if it's been sitting in a dusty record shop stack for years.
Below you can exclusively stream the tune "Roll Away the Song", a rollicking number nicely accented with twelve-string guitar and some wicked soloing. The chord progression of the song, which brings Led Zeppelin's "Over the Hills and Far Away" to mind, gives it a classic rock vibe.
Frontman Kevn Kinney describes "Roll Away the Song" thusly: "Requiem of a Traveling Rock Band… or, how to pretend what's happening isn't and what isn't is… in the key of D. Or, how to fold a fitted sheet."
Best of Songs, a vinyl-only release, will be out on 12 May via Plowboy.
