Looking for some truly great new music? Try “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth,” the latest release from Kentucky’s Sturgill Simpson. Easily the most unusual country album in quite some time. In fact, it quickly colors outside the lines of the musical genre and in the end becomes a hybrid of so many styles it’ll make your head spin – in a good way. With a voice that recalls but never copies artists as diverse as Dwight Yoakam, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and Raul Malo – your ears will be entertained from start to finish. At once country, then 6os doo-wop, then covering grunge legends Nirvana, this record is one good surprise after another.
