North Mississippi Allstars Live From The Divide is now streaming on PRX. The session was recorded at the KGLT 91.9 FM Live From The Divide stage in Bozeman, MT in February 2014
Take Me To the River, a documentary highlighting the music legacy of Memphis, TN, won the 24 Beats per Second Audience Award at this year’s SXSW. Produced by Cody Dickinson, this entertaining story of a vital slice of Memphis’ musical legacy features Terrence Howard, Snoop Dogg, Mavis Staples and many others. The film premiered this month at the annual film, technology, and music conference.
“Rock ‘n Roll Blues is acoustic folk-punk -country blues with juke joint drums recorded live to eight track tape in a race against my 40th birthday,” Dickinson said. “As brutally personal as the record is, I hope it communicates. The first song, “Vandalize,” is over twenty years old, and I finished the last song, “Karmic Debt,” the morning it was recorded- the whole record tells my story of a life in music.”
“The musician jokes on RnR Blues are so true they’re not funny. The aesthetic of the recording is as personal as the lyrics, ‘dead strings and ribbon mics’ with double drums using no cymbals, recorded tape to tape with no processing,” he adds.

The vinyl will be released on March 25 and is available for pre-order now from Amazon.
