Sturgill Simpson – Later

Later can be a bit hit or miss these days, though given there’s not much else besides it on the BBC it remains an important programme for artists and there’s none more deserving of a wider audience than Sturgill Simpson, so let’s be hoping that Joe Public can drop their pre-conceived ideas about country music and open their eyes and ears to the Metamodern Sounds in Country Music , the album is out on May 12th in the UK and you can pick up a copy from the fine folks at Loose.

Other guests on next week’s edition of the show include The Horrors, The Afghan Whigs, Little Dragon and Aloe Blacc.
