TUPELO – Before you can hear all three on one album, you can hear them all together live.

Cory Taylor Cox, Dubb Nubb and Chimney Choir are all a part of a compilation record, “Feels Like Coming Home,” that will be out later this summer on Special Passenger Records, but the trio are all performing at the Blue Canoe in Tupelo this week.

Cox, a North Mississippi native, said the “Feels Like Coming Home” includes artists singing songs about their hometown, and he chose Memphis, as he’s been living there for more than a year and has been playing there longer than that. His lyrics reflect the city’s musical layers.

“You have the tourist-y, Beale Street area, Midtown, which is Goner (Records), Shangri-La, the super-indie low-fi, then there’s the suburbs,” Cox said. “It’s a city I identify with. I’ts kind of an underdog city. There’s so much here besides the tourism aspect of it. I think it deserves a good word tr two, and I wanna be that messenger.”

Also on the bill is Dubb Nubb, who will represent its hometown of St. Louis.

“Dubb Nubb is two sisters and they’ve ot a girl-pop kind of sound, kind of along the lines of Moldy Peaches, Kimya Dawson. It’s adorable, adorable music,” he said.

Denver-based Chimney Choir features former Mayhem String band member Kevin Larkin.

Following the show at the Blue Canoe, Cox and Dubb Nubb are going on tour. The two are promoting the Shiny Mountain Split 7″ single. Each side features a new song, followed by a cover of each other’s songs.
