Label: Six Shooter
Sugar & Joy, The Dead South's tightest, weirdest and most exciting studio work yet, is their first album written and recorded outside Regina. The album was produced by FAME Studio-trained Jimmy Nutt, a longtime member of the Muscle Shoals music scene whose recent credits include a Grammy for his work on The Steeldrivers. "They have an obvious dedication to what they are doing," says Nutt. "They really encourage each other, which you don't see a lot."
