Just last week we brought you "River Fool" from Ian Noe, saying that it was a 70's style folk song just shy of easy listening. His latest single, "Burning Down the Prairie," goes off in a completely different direction. The new song still has that Bob Dylan style folk ramble, but this one is pure blues rock. At first it sounds more like The Doors fronted by Dylan (if The Doors got rid of their organ and hired a bass player) with that plodding kind of sound, and then bursts into full on electric guitar solos that sound like modern bands covering "Fortunate Son." It's rare for an artist to sound so significantly different between two singles, and has us even more curious about Noe's upcoming album.
You can watch the video for "Burning Down the Prairie" below. River Fools & Mountain Saints is due out March 25 on Thirty Tigers, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on Ian Noe, check out the artist's website.
