Splendor in the Grass


On his latest album, Grass, singer-songwriter Keller Williams applies his twisted spin to yet another genre project. This time, he gives bluegrass arrangements to a set of original and surprisingly adaptable cover songs. It's no revelation that the pair of Grateful Dead covers — "Loser" and "Dupree's Diamond Blues" — adjust quite well to Williams' banjos and mandolins. But the real treat is the acoustic take on "Another Brick in the Wall," which turns Pink Floyd's British-school rant into a backwoods call for hillbilly autonomy. Williams, a one-man band in concert, packs his shows with bizarre covers.
