Like the steady pendulum of a land oil rig, Americana songwriter Kory Quinn has tapped inspiration—and greater purpose—with his new EP, Black Gold Blues. Sharp and critical, Black Gold Blues swings between misery and pride of the working class. On the EP Quinn explores the complex relationships inherent in the immorality of modern capitalism and the individual purpose found in the work. For instance, “Oh, the work ain’t done,” he sings, “I’m better off to my master as a dead man’s son.” It’s this cognitive dissonance that lies at the heart of Black Gold Blues. With uncanny awareness, Quinn understands the exact point where two disparate paradigms collide and he speaks to that, turning a critical eye to everything from capitulation to fossil fuel use, the silent injustice of dead peasant insurance, the exploitation of fear to maintain the status quo, and the warrior paradigm inherent in police brutality.
