Exclusive Premiere: Brother Dege, ‘Pay No Mind’
On July 24, Brother Dege -- a.k.a. Dege Legg -- will celebrate the release of his latest full-length effort, Scorched Earth Policy: Deluxe. Ahead of that fateful day, we’re thrilled to partner with the Cajun bluesman to unveil his brand new track, “Pay No Mind” -- check it out in the audio player below.
Armed with a slide and a guitar and not much else, Brother Dege paints a vivid picture that many listeners will have no trouble relating to.
“‘Pay No Mind’ is a slow-mo meditation on the fine art of ignoring anything or anyone that either annoys the s--- out of you or does not contribute positively-aligned vibes to one’s Mephistophelian quest to rule the wasteland,” he tells us.
He adds, “Coincidentally, it was recorded in my Louisiana bunker ... located next door to an accounting firm that did not appreciate our noise mongering.”
If you find yourself thinking Brother Dege sounds a bit familiar, you’ve likely heard his music in a number of places, like on the Discover Channel or the National Geographic Channel, or even Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained.
Scorched Earth Policy: Deluxe follows 2014’s “summer mixtape” entitled Scorched Earth Policy. Packed with new songs, demos, covers and field recordings, Brother Dege decided to turn the mixtape into a proper studio album; Deluxe hits the streets on July 24 -- you can grab more details on the disc, along with Brother Dege’s full tour itinerary for 2015, at his official website.
