ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Modern Middle Age" best describes this effort by KCD, a guy who, after a lifetime of knocking around, finally wrote some up-to-date material, assembled "The Hallucinations," a crack team of musicians (including his son), and made his record. "twentyseventeen" features a fun variety of styles -- swampy blues, classic rock, country, alternative rock, and funk -- over smart songwriting with timely themes.

"The Land of Badass Women" kicks off the set with a gritty tribute to tough women everywhere. "Goodbye July" is an accordion-driven, acoustic, front-porch jam with a touch of melancholy lamenting the end of summer. The title track, "Ode to 2017," sums up the tumultuous year while paying homage to the late, great Tom Petty. "Who's the Rebel Now?" poses a lighthearted -- if timely -- question about firearms through a George Thorogood-sounding barroom brawl featuring a wailing tenor sax. "We're All Trying" is an alternative rocker, while "Modern Age" bookends the album with a throwback, blue-eyed soul groove.

The EP is mixed and mastered by the incomparable Jordan Richardson, who adds the finishing touches to this collection and makes the songs jump out of the speakers.
