Lund recovers with "Cabin Fever"
Tuesday, June 12, 2012
– Corb Lund will give listeners a dose of "Cabin Fever," when he releases his next disc on Aug. 14 on New West Records.
The Canadian singer's 2009 U.S. debut, "Losin' Lately Gambler," earned him an Americana Music Award nomination for New & Emerging Artist.
"Chaos and irreverence informs the way I write. I'm also drawn to harmony and chord choices that are outside the norms of country," said Lund.
Hayes Carll joins Lund on the humorous Bible on the Dash, for which he flew to Alberta, Canada to co-write and record in person.
Lund and his band The Hurtin' Albertans did with very little overdubbing. Lund said, "Some of my favorite records are really raw and feel casual and real. We didn't use a click track. There's cohesion with a band that plays live together so much and has been together for 10 years."
A Juno Award winner who has multiple Canadian Gold Records, Lund also won the Canadian Country Music Awards Roots Artist of the Year seven times running.
Songs on the CD are:
1. Gettin' Down On The Mountain
2. Dig Gravedigger Dig
3. Bible On The Dash
5. Mein Deutsches Motorrad
6. Cows Around
7. (You Ain't A Cowboy) If You Ain't Been Bucked Off
8. Drink It Like You Mean It
9. Priceless Antique Pistol Shoots Startled Owner
10. The Gothest Girl I Can
11. One Left In The Chamber
12. Pour 'Em Kinda Strong

Things That Can't Be Undone
While it is perhaps unfair to put too much focus on the producer of an album, the current weight of having a production credit from Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Jamey Johnson) is certain to garner notice from fans of high quality songwriters. Cobb's recent albums have an organic sound showcasing his natural ability to push an artist to realize their full creative potential. Canadian artist Corb Lund decided to work with Cobb on his latest release, and the results are eye opening. »»»
Corb Lund is a Canadian artist, whose gritty blend of country, blues, folk, jazz and more made him a surprise success on the musically conservative national country landscape. After rising to the top of the Canadian scene, Lund set his sights south of the border to the notoriously tough American roots music scene. He released his debut in 1995, while still a part of the underground punk/metal group The Smalls of Edmonton. But it wasn't until late 2009 when he released "Losin' Lately »»»
Corb Lund and the Hurtin' Albertans may be the hardest working outfit in country music. Their work and growth shows up in the skill and diversity found on their new release, "Cabin Fever." Since his debut in 1995, Lund has specialized in crossing country styles from Texas swing to traditional country with occasional stops in the singing-cowboy influence of Roy Rogers.
This new stream of songs are as varied as they are entertaining and engaging. The secret here is in the »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Concert Review: Turner bring it on (to his second) home

Turner made a major change in this year's festival. For the first time, he... »»»
