Keller & the Keels - Speed CD
Williams returns with his Bluegrass outfit Keller & The Keels (featuring Williams on vocals, along with progressive flatpicker Larry Keel and bassist Jenny Keel) as they reinterpret popular songs in their trademark psychedelic Appalachian bluegrass style. The original songs and covers heard on SPEED include Fiona Apple's "Criminal", Kacey Musgraves' "Slow Burn", Weezer's "Island In The Sun," and many more tunes you're sure to recognize. SPEED is the trio's third collaboration together, following their 2006 release GRASS and 2012's all-covers album THIEF.
"This project is nothing but fun. At least for us. When we first started playing together, we vowed not to gig too much, so it will be special every time we would pick. This record documents this theory perfectly. One of Larry's, one of mine and a bunch of covers that chose me. Long live the Keels." KW
