Brighter Than Creation's Dark was my #2 record of last year. Honestly though, we're still a little put off by their decidedly piss-poor show at Terminal 5 with the Hold Steady. I guess everyone has off nights, especially at T5. Anyway, front man Patterson Hood has a new solo LP coming soon. Murdering Oscar (and other love songs), drops 6/23 on Ruth St. Records. This is Patterson's follow up to his dark (I mean really dark) debut LP Killers and Stars. Where that was a closely recorded acoustic affair produced mostly at Patterson's dining room table, Oscar seems to be more fleshed out, featuring other members of DBT, Patterson's fave band Centro-matic, and even his famous pop - Muscle Shoals' own David Hood.
We love ya Patterson, but Cooley 4eva.
