{David Dondero- South Of The South}

daviddondero.jpgSouth Of The South is the new album from one of my favorite singer-songwriters David Dondero, who delivers yet another impressive collection of literate folk-blues numbers. Dondero writes in a stream-of-consciousness style with equal parts humor, condescension, lust, and sentiment. His music shares a kinship with folk music troubadours Woody Gutherie and Townes Van Zandt...but in his lyrics there is always some sort of political message (wether it be the politics of love, war, or sex). So, I guess from that angle he'd even have some Bob Dylan influence in there too. Dondero recently switched labels from Future Farmer to (Conor Oberst's ) Team Love Records and I feel sorta guilty pointing out that South Of The South is available for download FOR FREE in it's entirety courtesy of Team Love here...so make sure you check him out when he comes to a venue in your town. If your a fan of Bright Eyes then you should know that in the past Conor has listed Dondero as an influence stating that "It was hearing his voice that made me comfortable with my own.” Nuff said.
