DBT’s Keyboardist Jay Gonzalez Releasing Five-Song Power-Pop EP

Drive-By Truckers keyboardist Jay Gonzalez is releasing a five-song EP on April 7th, but anyone fortunate enough to have discovered his 2012 gem Mess of Happiness knows better than to expect a knockoff of the Truckers’ Americana domain. Rather, the music of The Bitter Suite bobbles along in the perky crossroads between early/mid-70s power pop and late-70s/early-80s melodic new wave, bringing to mind a pleasantly quirky marriage of Todd Rundgren and Joe Jackson.

The Bitter Suite is primarily a digital release, but there will be a limited-edition 12-inch vinyl run of 350 copies, with all the songs on one side and an etching by Athens-based artist Jeff T. Owens on the flip side. Owens also designed the cover artwork.
