Songwriter and guitarist Ry Cooder digs deep into the American psyche with Pull Up Some Dust and Sit Down. Inspired by a headline he'd read about the Wall Street bailout, and those who profited most from it, Cooder composed the album's opening track, "No Banker Left Behind," in a style not heard since his earliest recordings. It would have been right at home on his self titled debut or Paradise and Lunch. While not a concept recording, it is an album that reacts to the times topically.Its songs are declarative, sometimes angry, yet display his requisite humor and irony.
