T. Hardy Morris Brings Two Tracks From His Recent LP to His “Neighborhoods” Set in Athens, GA
Watch Morris perform “Fake Gold” and “DirtRocker” from The Digital Age of Rome at Athens’ Zomba Farm.
T. Hardy Morris burst onto the Southern rock scene over a decade ago with his band Dead Confederate before linking up with members of Deer Tick, Los Lobos, and Black Lips to help form the blues-punk outfit Diamond Rugs. Meanwhile, he began releasing singles and demos as a solo artist under his own name, building up to a pair of proper albums which he added to back in June with the release of his third LP entitled The Digital Age of Rome. Opener “DirtRocker” presents the record as a culmination of his career making ragged alt-country in the vein of Deer Tick and Black Lips–esque garage rock, all with a new digital sheen.
It’s this track he chose to perform for his recent “Neighborhoods” set, which he filmed at Athens, Georgia’s Zomba Farm, along with the more introspective and steel guitar–assisted late-album track “Fake Gold.” Accompanied by nothing but an electric guitar and the biggest amp he could find, watch Morris play through both tracks in the video below.
