Tedeschi Trucks Band - Revelator (2011)

"She wakes up in the morning / To a kettle on the stove / Peeling wallpaper / House next to a dusty road"

How's that for imagery? It's Sunday which means it's time to cozy up with your headphones and settle in to some wholesome, soul stirring groves. And what better way to do that than with the King and Queen of Southern Rock, Derek Trucks and his wife Susan Tedeschi.

Revelator is their debut album together along with their awesome 11 piece band - the Tedeschi Trucks Band. Steeped in southern gospel and gritty soul with a groove more common to rock, and funk, Revelator will take you on an aural journey to Memphis, Alabama, Texas and New Orleans (look for the hidden track Ghost Light). The album's content seamlessly shifts from blues' about broken hearts to rocking funk jams about movin' on. Something to watch for is the interplay between Trucks' signature Gibson and Tedeschi's Fender - totally different tones. Good thing it's ripped @ 320.

Happy Sunday!
