Song of the Day - September 15, 2006

I really enjoyed listening to the latest album from Blood Meridian Kick Up the Dust. Taking their name from the stark but bloody novel of Cormac McCarthy set on the Tex-Mex border during the 19th century. Blood Meridian's music clearly resides in the Americana genre, greatly influenced by Neil Young. However, there is a strong dose of the Allman Brothers, particularly in the guitar work. The band boasts members that also play in the Black Mountain and Pink Mountaintops. I was wrestling with my song of the day choice between the angst ridden "Work Hard, For What?," a song in which I clearly enjoyed the lyrics, and "Let It Come Down," a slow, mournful, beautiful song that clearly shows the influence of the Allman Brothers. In the end, I selected "Let It Come Down" for its beautiful guitar accompaniment. Click here to listen.
