Lydia Loveless - Somewhere Else (Album Review)

I’ve heard a lot of really unique descriptions of Lydia Loveless's new album, "Somewhere Else".  It’s always X + Y that supposedly equals a new sound.  None of them seem to capture the essence of the record for me.  On Loveless’s Facebook page, her sound is described as “Loretta Lynn and Patti Smith slamming shots at a Midwestern dive bar while cowboys and punks brawl out back”.  That’s a good one, but for my ears, even that falls flat.  If you want a… Continue

Q and A with Miss Tess and the Talkbacks

Miss Tess and the Talkbacks are an edgy band.  Edgy in a good way.  From song to song you never know what kind of potion the band will cook up for the listener.  They are masters at so many different styles and when all is said and done, they’re just plain awesome.  Grooving modern vintage music is what they sometimes call their genre and that’s perfect.  It’s a little bit old and a little bit contemporary and it’s just fine by…

Blair Dunlop - House of Jacks (Album Review)

Young folksinger finds a voice to match his impressive words

Even at the tender age of 22, Blair Dunlop already has all the hallmarks of a seasoned pro: fronting the reformed and regenerated Albion Band, touring solo virtually non-stop, winning plaudits and awards for his debut album in 2012; all of which all brings us to what they call ‘the difficult second album.’

So, can the young man meet the expectation of a doting public? It’s an emphatic yes, from me,…

Rod Kennedy (1930-2014) and the Kerrville Folk Festival - Interview & Remembrance

Rod Kennedy’s legacy is incalculable for those who truly love music, he departed this earthly plane on Monday 14th April 2014. R.I.P.

The following “warts and all” late May 1986 interview with Mr. Kennedy, the founder of the Kerrville Folk Festival, was the lead feature in the debut issue of the Kerrville Kronikle fanzine sometime around 1988. No serendipity, that placement was intentional. The 1986…

Jeff Black – Folklore (Album Review)

The latest tunes from Missouri bred Black - thirteen of them – are delivered solo and acoustic.

Jeff Black’s tenth album, another self-release was recorded at his rustic Arcana Studios as were recent predecessors PLOW THROUGH THE MYSTIC (2011) and B-SIDES AND CONFESSIONS, VOL. 2 (2013). Produced by Black, the sessions took just two days and the sounds captured were mixed, once again, by Dave Sinko (Chris Thile & The Punch…

Katie Herzig - Walk Through Walls (Album Review)

Once upon a time, Katie Herzig wore her heart on her sleeve and wielded an acoustic guitar, both apropos of being a singer/songwriter. These days, though, she keeps company with synthesizers and drum loops. Yeah, the heart is still right there on the sleeve, but now you can groove to its beat.

Herzig's new collection, Walk Through Walls, is a song cycle that is as musically complex as it is emotionally…
