These are scary times and in scary times it's always good to hear from an old friend. Kory Quinn's special brand of bare-boned blues is the perfect soundtrack for trying times. Quinn likes to turn to old-time sounds to lay bare the harsh realities of the modern age -- and to show us that we haven't come so far after all.
The recordings were done by Mike Coykendall (M Ward, She & Him) and Jon Neufeld (Black Prairie, Jackstraw, Delorean, & Kung Pow Chickens). On "OxyContin Blues," written by Joey Carper, Quinn digs deep into what was, until two weeks ago, one of the largest crises the country is facing.
