Our World Cafe: Next artist this week is a singer-songwriter from Eastern Kentucky named Sturgill Simpson. Earlier this year he self-released his second album, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music. He has called it a "social consciousness" concept album disguised as a country record. That may be, but there is no disguising Sturgill's amazing voice and the songwriting on this record.
