Download Charlie Parr & The Black Twig Pickers – Pure Religion

Recorded in a shed in rural Virginia this summer, this album of country gospel, blues and bluegrass is a long way from the jaunty cheer of much of what passes for mountain music these days. This music is dark and often harsh, full of drones and repetition and religious dread. For all that, it’s beautiful and intimate and inspired. More William Faulkner than O Brother, Where Art Thou, and the better for it.

Shitkickin’.
