February 2017: Aaron Lee Tasjan on Elizabeth Cook’s “Exodus of Venus”

East Nashville’s Aaron Lee Tasjan takes over this month, selecting fellow Nashvillian Elizabeth Cook’s deep and resolute 2016 release, Exodus of Venus.

“We’re going from Little Feat to REM, then put Appalachian harmonies on it. It’s all funky grooves with dark guitars, burning guitars. People were tweeting me, ‘Are you keeping it country?’ And the truth is: No, I’m keeping it real. Not to a genre, but to what these songs are.” – Elizabeth Cook
