Raunchy soul oddball reemerges as a chastened, gospel-tinged holy roller

Two years ago, Cody ChesnuTT reappeared like a wandering soul once feared lost to the winds of time. Nearly a decade had passed since his debut album, The Headphone Masterpiece, a two-disc, two-hour morass of funky rock 'n' blues that evoked Shuggie Otis and Jimi Hendrix in its horny impudence, says Spin magazine. His 2010 comeback EP, Black Skin, No Value, reinvented the ladykiller as an avenging social activist, wearing a military-style helmet, as if heading into some battle that only he could envision.
Two songs from that EP reoccur on the new full-length Landing on a Hundred: "Everybody's Brother" tells the story of a swindler and a drug addict who now teaches Sunday school. And "Where Is All the Money Going" is an open-ended question aimed at the world's gangsters and hustlers.
Cody ChesnuTT today is a soul troubadour whose frank, socially conscious ruminations on life continue to challenge popular notions of what modern soul music can look and sound like: a raw storyteller for the people wearing a guitar and a toothpick-chewing smirk; a wide-eyed, intense soul brother in a crazy-fly get-up singing about bedraggled love in the land of Lost Angeles - he's all of that, but wiser now while still wearing poetic license on his skin like a battle scar.
