File under "R&B murder." That's how Drive-By Truckers describe the music on their ninth studio album, a raggedy revision of classic Southern soul, complete with two Eddie Hinton covers. It's a slight shift from DBT's muscular alt-country, but the rest is familiar: great storytelling – tales of embittered ex-cops, adulterous preachers and emotionally scarred Vietnam vets – hinged to choruses that lodge in your cranium. The groove on songs like "The Thanksgiving Filter" are pure Muscle Shoals (frontman Patterson Hood's father played bass in the Muscle Shoals rhythm section), but the lyrics are hilariously 2011: "My aunt's praising Palin, and my niece loves Obama/My uncle came to dinner wearing his pajamas."
