Embrace the choogle. As far as summer jammers go, Sean Thompson’s ‘Weird Ears’ LP from last August continues to pay dividends as it slides from country to cosmic in the blink of an eye. Presently woodshedding material for his next full-length, we caught up with Thompson and co. from his Nashville home, cutting four tracks for his inaugural Lagniappe Session. Come for the Funkadelic cover, stay for the Kernal.
Going from country to cosmic in the blink of an eye, the debut long-player from Sean Thompson’s Weird Ears will put a smile on your face and a spring in your step—guaranteed. The Nashville-based guitarist has established himself as a valued sideman over the years (you’ve heard him with Erin Rae, Eve Maret and Spencer Cullum as well as with the late/lamented Promised Land Sound), thanks to his tasty/tasteful six-string mastery.
