As the sons of legendary producer and pianist Jim Dickinson, brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson have long been steeped in musical history, and with their band North Mississippi Allstars, they manage to draw from traditional blues and Southern-rock influences and make them feel vibrant and relevant instead of just nostalgic. The duo’s upcoming release, Prayer for Peace, is a combination of originals and covers, including R.L. Burnside’s dirty blues workout “Long Haired Doney” and Mississippi Fred McDowell’s classic exhortation “You Gotta Move.” The Dickinsons even reveal a little bit of social awareness on the album’s title track, which melds funky riffs and rootsy harmonies with references to Martin Luther King Jr. in a fervently uplifting plea for social justice and racial harmony.
