On Booker T. Jones’ “Warped Sister,” featuring Drive-By Truckers and Neil Young


Booker T. + the DBT’s; presumably Neil Young’s too busy with his electric-car rock opera to be photographed.

As the phrase “bitter cold” figures heavily in many NYC weather reports today, let us seek out perhaps the warmest-sounding man in all of music: Booker T. Pitchfork is streaming a track from the Stax giant/MGs cohort’s imminent ANTI- solo album, Potato Hole — “Warped Sister” features surly guitar from the Drive-By Truckers and Neil Young, though that’s not terrifically evident, given that the focus is focus is squarely on Mr. T. Jones’ (yes) very very warm and vividly melodic organ work, not to mention the equally excellent cowbell. Put this on repeat and don’t leave your apartment under any circumstances.
