Dating back to the Beatles and the Stones, rock bands that set themselves apart from the pack tend to contain two or more songwriters and draw most of their creative energy from batting ideas back and forth, amiably or otherwise. In this day and age, you can see that yin-yang musical tension in Drive-By Truckers, Kings of Leon and now the Departed. An alliance between former Cross Canadian Ragweed singer Cody Canada and Seth James, previously a Red Dirt maverick in the Billy Joe Shaver mold, the Departed released their first album of originals, the resolutely blue-collar Adventus, last fall. Changing horses in midstream rarely works this well so far along into an artist's career, but for Canada and James, this time it has.
