2 Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest

by Pickled Okra

A collection of quirky love songs with rich disonent husband & wife singing woven in among the highs of mandolin and the lows of the upright bass. Includes ever present scruggs style banjo and a bit of guitar and dobro, for what some might call bluegrass.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Todd and Paisley Gray - the core of Pickled Okra bring you their 4th recording. The songs are mostly originals, newly written by the duo, with a couple classic covers thrown in. Overall, the collection spans a broader range of emotions than their previous recordings. As always, the quirky, light hearted approach to Americana music the band has become known for is alive and well in songs like "Grocery Store" and "Worn Out Shoes". Still others, like "69 Days" are deadly serious, compelling looks at real inner struggles and pain, showing a darker side of Pickled Okra than the we've perhaps shown before. The reggae twinged "Gimme Some Love", and the space - jammy "Cuckoo/Jolene", show off the duo's ability to glide seamlessly between grooves, and even genre's, while staying true to their sound.
