Knowlton Bourne at Big Takeover

Recorded during a year he spent working on a farm outside of Oxford, Mississippi, “out of school and out of his mind,” Knowlton Bourne’s Songs From Motel 43 is the debut album from the 23-year-old Mississippi native. It’s been described as a cross between Pernice Brothers and The Verve, and dang if it don’t sound like that. We love the cosmic-country vibe of this one.
