2008 Rewind: H for Hayes Carll

Posted By on Tue, Dec 23, 2008 at 2:31 PM

"Crystal Beach Memories"

Hayes Carll. This adopted Arkie (he went to Hendrix, called his second album “Little Rock” and has a lyric that goes “Arkansas, my head hurts/I'd love to stick around and maybe make it worse”) released an acclaimed album, “Trouble in Mind,” that earned him a fervent national following, but his album didn’t stick with me as much as “Crystal Beach Memories,” the viral promo video his label Lost Highway released earlier this year. It’s a cartoon of the singer reminiscing about one of his first steady gigs — at a bar and grill where the cook was named Bull, pills went into the tip jar and the only thing anyone wanted to hear was “Free Bird.” It’s wry and visually playful and unlike anything else on the web.
