The North Mississippi Allstars have been cranking out soulful, hard-driving Southern rock for some seven studio records now. But for brothers Luther and Cody Dickenson, it’s not just rock for rock’s sake. They dig deep for the roots of the music they’re passionate about: the Delta blues and the downhome sounds of folks like R.L. Burnside, Otha Turner, Junior Kimbrough and Fred McDowell. The group has a new album, World Boogie Is Coming, and the brothers Dickenson spoke about it with Weekend Edition Sundayguest host Wade Goodwyn. Click the audio link to hear their conversation.
