Counting Crows - Butter Miracle Suite One (with special guest Katie Darby Mullins) (2021)

For Trevor's next pick of a new album from 2021, he selects the latest from Counting Crows titled Butter Miracle Suite One. Joining Trevor and Shane for this album dive is special guest Katie Darby Mullins. In addition to being a die-hard fan of the band, Katie is also a longtime friend of lead singer Adam Duritz. If that isn't enough to get you excited, she also teaches creative writing at the University of Evansville including a course titled, "How to Write About Music," and she is a gifted poet and novelist (see more on Katie below). Shane, Trevor, and Katie have fun diving deep into the lyrics of one of their favorite songwriters after what has been a 7 year break since the band's last album. This 4 song suite is a unique endeavor for Adam Duritz who found himself being inspired by the solitude of a friend's home in London and the challenge of creating a series of songs that all bleed together into one. The hallmarks of great writing and musicianship that fans have come to expect from the band are both here, but after nearly 30 years of making records, Butter Miracle Suite One shows us that Counting Crows are still very much a relevant band today that continues to push themselves in creatively new ways.
