North Mississippi Allstars Share ‘Up And Rolling’ Video
Last month, North Mississippi Allstars announced their newest album, Up And Rolling, which is due out on October 4 via New West Records. Now, the group led by brothers Luther Dickinson and Cody Dickinson has previewed the forthcoming LP’s title track with the music video for “Up And Rolling.”
“Up And Rolling” is a dreamy number built around Luther Dickinson’s easygoing, cascading guitar riff and the tight rhythm section of Cody Dickinson and new bassist Carl Dufrene. With this foundation, Luther and Sharisse Norman offer up gorgeous vocal harmonies while crooning an ode to “Mississippi hippies tripping LSD.”
As Luther explained to Relix, which premiered the video:
“The video for ‘Up and Rolling’ was shot on location at our family’s recording studio compound and Otha Turner’s driveway. [Director] J.B. Lawrence got a mean case of poison ivy. I escaped with a mere 30 or so chigger bites. … You can see the Mississippi heat in the haze of our film. The camera shut down from overheating at one point. ‘Up and Rolling’ is about good times and despite the heat we genuinely enjoyed ourselves, goofing around, dancing to the tune blasting out of our Ford van. The nighttime dancing in head light shoot ran J.B.’s car battery down but our van’s faithful jumper cables saved the day and we went our separate ways, hot, exhausted, and only beginning to itch.
