David Grubbs “The Plain Where the Palace Stood”

(Drag City) Grubbsy Getting’ Groovy! The title track, with soulfully scrambllin’ fiddle work by C. Spencer Yeh, and weirdly seductive drumming by Stefano Pilia is downright danceable, if you don’t care how you look dancing. DG’s axe almost wails on the humble brag titled “Super Adequate.” And he tries his damndest to sing as pretty as he can when he sings. So basically, as idiosyncratic and experimental as this album (as always) is, this time it seems he’s experimenting with making people actually dig his music!
