Sonny Landreth takes off on a turbocharged Blacktop Run
Acclaimed guitarist’s new album mixes genres and styles across a landscape of lyricism and rootsy grooves
Out on Provogue Records on February 21, 2020
Limited one-time pressing on gold vinyl
A percussive burst of acoustic resonator guitar pushes the narrator on a journey “between the life I left and the edge of next” in the title cut of guitarist, songwriter and bandleader Sonny Landreth’s 14th album. As the singer feels the wind at his back, a rising bass line intersects Landreth’s vocalizing to stretch the fingerpicked tune into Far Eastern melodicism.
The south Louisiana artist’s groundbreaking work has long mixed familiarity with experimentation, and his latest ten-song collection stretches from hard-edged electric instrumentals to wistful acoustic ballads.
