Listen to Jeremy Pinnell’s Album Opener “Big Ol’ Good” Exclusively at DittyTV


Album-opener “Big Ol’ Good” uses a totally different kind of groove and bottleneck slide to channel that Billy F. Gibbons thing in a song about, in Jeremy Pinnell’s words, “the pains we put ourselves through trying to gain or preserve relationships with other human beings.” Today, DittyTV premiered Pinnell’s third single from his upcoming album Goodbye L.A. alongside an exclusive interview, in which Pinnell speaks about working with producer Jonathan Tyler, his favorite Kentucky artists, and more. Fans can hear “Big Ol’ Good” now right here and pre-order Goodbye L.A. ahead of its October 1st release on SofaBurn Records at this link.

The collective sound of Goodbye L.A. isn’t so much polished-up as it is intentionally steered to fit Pinnell’s goal of making a fun record. “[Production-wise] I wanted like ‘80s Waylon, ZZ Top. My idea was that I wanted to write a record that made people happy,” he says. “I want people to dance and have fun and love each other.” A big part of getting the desired result was bringing in Jonathan Tyler to produce Goodbye L.A., the result hitting the desired mark dead-center. Rooted in his steady acoustic guitar, Pinnell’s songs are shot through with honest and classic elements. The rhythm section, all snap and shuffle, find purpose in well-worn paths. The pedal steel and Telecaster stingers arrive perfectly on cue, winking at Pinnell’s world-wise couplets. A slippery Hammond organ insinuates gospel into the conversation. Listeners can feel the room breathe and get a sense of these musicians eyeballing each other as their performances are committed to tape.
