Sturgill Simpson, "It Ain't All Flowers"

The longest track on 2014's Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, "It Ain't All Flowers" rides a seven-minute rollercoaster of twists, turns, lows and haunting highs. The final two minutes may be the psychedelic pinnacle of Simpson's career, sending the listener down a rabbit hole of vocal loops, backwards instruments, phased percussion and guitar noise.
