That's The Sh!t Thursday - Brandon Clark

The first RDBC That's The Shit Thursday this year is going to be setting the bar pretty high. As a fan of music, I love when an artist I have been following for a while puts out something that can catch me off guard. That is exactly what happened for me recently with Oklahoma musician Brandon Clark and his latest album titled Burn.

Released at the end of last year, Clark's album Burn is a collection of songs that refuses to be pigeonholed into any one genre. But seriously, screw labels... This thing is good.

For me, the stand out track on an album filled with amazing songs is a song titled "Skeletons." This song was written with fellow Okie and bad ass in his own right, John Moreland. It is a haunting but introspective tune reminding us all that we all have our skeletons to deal with.

Whether you are a fan of country, rock, soul searching ballads, or maybe even something a little punk, you can get a taste of it all here. Taking a step in a different direction and recording an album that was more a solo project than previous efforts Burn seems to bring to light some of the songs Clark has likely had hidden away that didn't quite fit his band's chemistry. One thing is for certain, Brandon has managed to pull together an eclectic mix of songs and blended them masterfully into a solid album well worth a listen.
