Cody ChesnuTT taps Gary Clark Jr for the bounce-inducing church blues of “Gunpowder On The Letter”, his first drop from the upcoming B-Side & Remixes cut of his stellar Landing On A Hundred LP. Clark and ChesnuTT trade off sliding licks and croon supreme all over this shuffling rocker, perfectly melding each of their strong suits. ChesnuTT has mounted quite a resurgence this year.
His album Landing On A Hundred turned out to be the old-soul review most of us always knew he was capable of, he landed himself on one of our star-studded showcases at SXSW this year, and now it seems he’s releasing a B-Sides & Remixes cut of the aforementioned LP, chock full of one-offs, never-heards and remixes by ?uestlove, Danny! –on a special OKP remix of “Scroll Call”– and Jay West & Manuel Sahagun. Landing On A Hundred: B-Sides & Remixes is due out March 11th and if you’re in Austin next week, you can get acquainted with the soul-smith when he hits the stage at our colossal showcase next Saturday. Peep the latest from ChenuTT and Clarke with their perfectly suited collaboration “Gunpowder On The Letter” below.
