He has some sweet licks on that album and his approach seems to be getting even more refined, tasteful, and for lack of a better word...badass. His attention to coloristic and textural elements is truly unparalleled. Also, I was able to pick his brain a bit at the Knoxille show a few days ago and I was surprised with how genuinely nice he is. Nels also told me that the new album would be out in June, which is pretty great considering Im seeing them in Cincinatti on June 12th and was able to see them on the day that Ashes of American Flags was released. What are the odds?
I also love Sky Blue Sky, it is way different, more organic? I guess thats the word. But I love his style on that, some truely great cuts on that album. I bought it off iTunes and it says there is a bonus track, so I don't know if it is on other versions of the album, but it is called Let's Not Get Carried Away and it is an awesome song. Just classsic, BA rock n' roll, he plays a solo which is great, but throughout the whole song he is completly on point. Represents the whole album, awesome song.
