Sturgill Simpson

Sturgill Simpson

Sturgill Simpson’s ‘A Sailor’s Guide to Earth’ is the rare album that traverses the entire world, both musically and lyrically. It’s dizzyingly diverse, jumping from one style to the next, with ports of call in Motor City and Music Row, Harlem and Stax, Berlin and London, yet it never leaves Simpson’s very specific point of view. It’s his most personal album as well as his most ambitious: a song cycle penned as a sailor’s poignant letter home to the wife and child he left behind.

Aptly, ‘A Sailor’s Guide to Earth’ is all over the map, presenting Simpson as music’s most daring auteur. He combines the sophisticated soul of ’70s Motown, the stomping r&b flash of the Dap-Kings, the reckless rave-ups of the Stones and the Clash, even the countrypolitan flare of legendary Nashville producer Owen Bradley. “I wanted it to be an exploration of all the different types of music that I love — a musical journey,” he says. “I listen to a lot of Marvin Gaye, a lot of Bill Withers.

Guide to Sloss Fest, 2015

SlossFest

Modest Mouse may have just produced the best album of their career, quite possibly the best album of 2015, with A Stranger to Ourselves. The Avett Brothers need no introduction. They didn’t have to travel the world to garner the attention of music’s most legendary singers and songwriters, but to see them live it’s clear how passionate and dedicated they are to their fans. These two headliners alone make Sloss Music and Arts Festival the biggest concert ticket Birmingham has seen yet. But what about the rest of the line-up? These two headliners alone make Sloss Music and Arts Festival the biggest concert ticket Birmingham has seen yet. But what about the rest of the line-up?

The music enthusiast already plugged-in knows that these headliners are just the icing on the cake and the rest of the featured artists are well worth the price of admission. But for those of you who are not as plugged in, well allow us here at Mother Plug Music to do our job. This is everything you need to know…
