Country Fried Rock: T. Hardy Morris (Dead Confederate, Diamond Rugs)

T. Hardy Morris keeps the touchpoint of the Meat Puppets when critiquing his new songs.

The Daddy Fronting Dead Confederate and Diamond Rugs Is Drownin’ on a Mountaintop

T. Hardy Morris is probably known as much for his buddy band, Diamond Rugs (with members of Deer Tick and Los Lobos), as he is for his Southern rock band, Dead Confederate. Morris is less known for his solo albums, though, where he explores the intersection of early grunge with his own Southern rock sensibilities. Keeping a touch stone of “Will the Meatpuppets like this tune?” kept this Adam Landry-produced record on point. Drownin’ on a Mountaintop moves on from Audition Tapes.
