    Carolina Chocolate Drops' "Daytrotter" Session Now Available to "Bust You Out of Your Stupor"
    Johnnie Cluney

    The Carolina Chocolate Drops are today's Daytrotter artist: their session of five songs—"Po' Black Sheep," "Skillet Good and Greasy," "Julianne Johnson /Arkansas Traveler," "Sourwood Mountain," and "Why Don't You Do Right?"—has now been published at daytrotter.com. The band's infectious sounds brighten even the deepest doldrums brought on by a relentlessly sodden spring, according to Daytrotter's Sean Moeller.

    That bright spirit "seems to come from the hearts of four human beings who are impossibly revved up, firing off some spastic lightning from their fingertips, making the ebullient sounds of an old-time train heist on a classic western," writes Moeller. "They bust you out of your stupor and you're immediately more agile, only because you've got to keep up with your heart rate ... We feel good again ... We're at a hoedown that was put together just for us, just to build us back up into people who could appreciate a clear blue, bright yellow day."
