This is awesome.
Ageless weirdo Dan Hicks, who, like MacArthur, was born in Little Rock into a military family and moved as a toddler, has a new album out today with his longtime band the Hot Licks. It’s called “Tangled Tales,” and at least based on the track below, it’s what we’ve come to expect from Hicks over the last several decades. Wry lyrics. Jazz swing. Sweet, high pitched female backing vocals (the Lickettes).
