[lastfm]Keller Williams[/lastfm]‘ latest studio release, ‘thief’, serves as a follow-up to his highly acclaimed 2006 release of anything-but-traditional bluegrass songs, ‘grass’. Teaming up once again with his good friends Larry and Jenny Keel (on guitar and bass, respectively), Keller gives the bluegrass treatment to 13 unexpected rock, pop and folk songs. From [lastfm]Ryan Adams[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Amy Winehouse[/lastfm] to [lastfm]Presidents of the United States of America[/lastfm] and the [lastfm]Butthole Surfers[/lastfm], [lastfm]Keller & the Keels[/lastfm] tread on hallowed territory. But with ‘thief’, they aren’t stealing from their musical heroes, rather paying their respects and breathing new life into old classics.
