      I Prefer To Create Friction, Post-Country Chanteuse Aubrie Sellers Offers. Because If Youre Not Pushing Buttons, Youre Just Making Something Pleasant, Its Probably Been Done Before... And Its Not Making Anyone Feel Anything. In This World Of Pretty Little Girls Who Are Seen And Not Heard And Reality Stars Who Are Famous For Nothing, The 24 Year Old Songwriter Aint Buying In. Laughing, She Continues, Id Rather My Music Be Polarizing Than Everyone Like It, Because They Rarely Do. I Think Passion Is A Lot Deeper Than That. I Want To Go Deeper, And Be Honest That Life Isnt Just Some Party And Going Out. I Mean, Dont People Feel Anything? Not That New City Blues Is Some Kind Of Morbid, Maudlin Affair. From The Cutlery In The Blender Indictment Of Surface Beauty Paper Doll To The Lone Star Drive Of Just To Be With You And The Tumbledown Melody Of Sit Here And Cry, This Is A High Energy Box Cutter Of Emotion: 14 Songs Marked By The Bite And Punch Of Smart Girls Who Know Theres More To Life Than A Cold Beer And Cut-Offs. I Tell People Theres Not A Lot Of Happy Songs, The Texas/Nashville Hybrid Cautions. But Theyre Not Unhappy Songs, Either. Its Life... The Way It Is, And Whats Wrong With That? Theres A Definite Viscerality To New City Blues. From The Yearning Title Track To The Slow-Building Loveless Rolling Stone, The Sense Of Displacement Marking So Many Young People Uncertain About The Future Tempers The Pools Of Guitar Lines, The Way Her Voice Has Just The Slightest Ache When She Finds A Notes Center. My Influences Are All Over The Place: The Kinks, Screaming Jay Hawkins, Buddy And Julie Miller, Creedence, Even Ricky Skaggs. Patty Griffin, Neil Young And Bob Dylan, Some Acoustic Things. Led Zeppelin Is My Biggest Rock Influence And That Goes Right Straight, For Me, To Ralph Stanley. That Raw Bluegrass, The Banjo, Thats The Same Energy And Intensity You Get In Punk. Its All Music Thats Driven, Thats Haunted, That Cuts And Moves. To Try To Put A Label On Sellers Sound Is Tricky. If Theres A Slight Drawl When She Sings, Its Where She Comes From. But The Sound I Love Trashy Drums And Telecaster Guitars, But Then That Dreamy Atmospheric Daniel Lanois Kind Of Effect Has An Immediacy And An Urgency, As Well As A Porous Jagged Edge That Could Only Be Described As Garage Country. Its So Much More Like More Garage Rock, That Raw Raging Stuff. Its Ryan Adams And Dwight Yoakam, Who Are Merciless And Just Keep Coming Even When Theyre Quiet. So That Fits... In A Weird Way. Its Better Than Anything Else I Can Call It. And Never Underestimate How Important Melody Is To The Woman Raised On The Road With Her Mother Critically Acclaimed Progressive Traditionalist Lee Ann Womack. The Kinds Of Melodies Im Drawn To I Dont See Coming From Anywhere Else. The Feeling Under A Song Comes From The Notes And How They Move From One To Another; Thats The Real Essence Of A Song. Thats Why I Like A Lot Of Bluegrass And Robert Johnson, The Melody Tells You As Much As The Words Do. Sellers Was Basted In Music Before She Was Even Born. Her Father Jason Sellers, Now A Top Songwriter, Was On The Road With Ricky Skaggs, Then Had His Own Solo Deal. The Grammy-Winning Womack Is A Singers Singer, Whos Performed With Or For Willie Nelson, Buddy Miller, The Fairfield Four, Steve Earle And Maya Angelou. All My Memories Are Sitting On The Bus, Listening To My Mom Play And Sing. Always Being On The Way To Somewhere Else... And I Loved It. The Rootlessness Comes Honest. As Does A Perspective That In Some Ways Outstrips Her Years. The Way I Grew Up, I Look At Certain Situations Differently, See How Motivations Change. I Didnt Love Seeing How People Behaved When My Mom Was In A Room And How They Behaved When She Wasnt But It Gave Me Perspective. It Also Taught The Dark-Haired Introspective The Importance Of Holding The Music Above All Else. Though Shed Written Since She Was Young, I Didnt Consider Myself A Songwriter Til I Started Writing For This Album. Then I Couldnt Imagine Not Writing All My Songs. When Youve Been Playing Your Whole Life, You Want To Know The Songs Are As True As You Can Make Them. Whos Truer To My Life Than Me? Certainly No One Has A Take Like Miss Aubrie Sellers. From The Pointed Impaling Of Sensationalism Of Magazines To The Emergence From Petty Backstabbing Of The Meandering People Talking, The Whirling Reality Check Living Is Killing Me To The Lothario-Slashing Noir Liar Liar, Theres No Flinching Or Apologies Given. Instead The Record Thrashes, Lurches And Exorcises Much Of What She Finds Annoying. Thats How It Really Feels: That Frustration, That Jagged, Raucous StuffI Mean, When You See All This Stuff Around You Hypocrisy, Insincerity, Vanity For Vanitys Sake. You Can Own It And Laugh, Or Buy In And Im JustNotBuyingIn. We Are All Looking For The Same Kinds Of Things, She Concedes. But I Feel Disconnected A Lot From People My Age, Whether Its The Lack Of Direction Or FocusOr The Idea The Goal Is To Be Famous, Not For Something, But Just Famous. Is The Party Culture As Good As It Gets? Thats What Were Supposed To Want? Really? This Hyper-Extroversion Is Almost Its Own Pathology. And If Youre Not That, Its Not Okay? I Think Its Okay To Be A Thinker, To Be Quiet And Explore Things Like Music, Books, Conversations. When Youre Like That, It Makes The Songs Richer, Really, And Not So All-The-Same. Theres That Line Are You Here To Stay? Whered You Get Those Shoes? Why You Walking Around With New City Blues? That Says It All For Me. Its Why I Called The Album New City Blues. For Me It Encompasses A Perpetual Feeling Of Loneliness, And Of Not Fitting InFeeling Like Everyones Always Looking And Judging And Feeling Insecure. But I Also Liked It As A Title Because I Felt It Reflects The Subject Matter On This Record, The Same Kind Of Blues People Have Always Sung About, Just In A New Way, And With A New Sound. Most Of The Songs Have Those Dark Undertones, So It Seemed Honest And Appropriate. And Real. If The World According To Aubrie Lee Sellers Isnt Party 24/7, Theres Time To Ponder, To Reflect, To Fall In Love Instead Of Lust And To Experience The Glorious Pain Of Heartbreak Before Moving On. World-Wise, She Knows The Score And Isnt Afraid To Speak The Truth; But Shes Young Enough To Still Have Hope Tempered With A Wicked Wit And True Discernment. Maybe Thats The Best News Of All.
