Album Review: Tyminski | ‘Southern Gothic’

He was the deep, bluegrassy singing voice of George Clooney’s character in ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou’, a GRAMMY winner, and member of Alison Krauss & Union Station.

The new album, ‘Southern Gothic’ from Universal Nashville’s newest addition to their tremendous roster, Tyminski, is quite special. The first time I heard it, it gave me chills and I could not get the music out of my head.  It’s actually kind of indescribable. You can’t fit this one in the genre box. It’s swampy, haunting, cathartic, reflective, a little country, Americana, indie rock even…it’s magnificent and my favorite album to come out in a long time.

Do yourself a favor and buy this album. Grab a glass of wine or whiskey might be a little more appropriate for this one, turn up the volume, and be prepared to feel transported down to the deep southern cities of Savannah and New Orleans through the lyrical imagery of this musical masterpiece.  Imagine cities where Spanish moss hangs low from trees near over 100-year old southern mansions like the Garden District of New Orleans, and around every street corner you know there is some history, often a slightly sorted history that will intrigue you.  It’s just a vibe in both cities that is both unmistakable and indescribable, which is how I would describe this new album from Tyminski.

Better yet, grab a copy of this album, pack your bag, pop it in your car’s cd player, and take a weekend trip yourself down to these beautiful southern cities to see what I mean.  It’s the perfect soundtrack to accompany you along the way, if you decide to live it up and explore what I think inspired this album or at least what I imagine inspired it.

You’re going to love this one.  Buy it today!
