In another characteristically bold artistic departure, Sturgill Simpson’s new fourth album Sound and Fury is self-styled as a “sleazy, steamy, rock 'n' roll record”, inspired by such unlikely forebears as the Bee Gees, Cheap Trick, T. Rex and La Roux. Released simultaneously with an eponymous Netflix anime film, it finds Simpson inveighing furiously against the commercial pressures that followed his previous release, 2016’s Grammy-winning A Sailor’s Guide to Earth. Amidst a welter of high-octane production, glam-rock guitars, analogue synths and even disco beats, Simpson’s trenchant lyrics and searing expressive abandon affirm him as one of Americana’s most singularly exciting artists. “Awesome: powerful, fierce, irresistible. . . daring, restless and unique” (Guardian)
