"Thanks, reviewer. A huge Son Volt/Farrar fan, I had given up on this one, and now I feel like I have to listen to it again. Patience? That's so 20th century. But I'll stick with it..."

Album Review: Roger Knox and the Pine Valley Cosmonauts ~ Stranger in My Land

Roger Knox’s new album, his first in nine years, is a ambitious and expansive affair that seamlessly weaves together American and Aboriginal strands of country music with a strong social conscience and a laconic sense of humour.The collaborative aspect of Stranger in My Land is important but not one that overshadows the essence and charm of the songs. John Langford of Mekons and Waco Brothers played an important role in the making of the album and getting The Pine Valley Cosmonauts, Bonnie…See More

Simon Burt commented on Post To Wire's blog post 'CD Review - Delaney Davidson and Marlon Williams "Sad But True: The Secret History of Country Music Songwriting Vol. One"'
"Nice review Chris. Seen these guys a couple of times and they're a great live act - the unlikely pairing works as well on stage as on record. Williams is indeed a revelation, both vocally and in his inherent musicality and knowledge of the…"

CD Review - Delaney Davidson and Marlon Williams "Sad But True: The Secret History of Country Music Songwriting Vol. One"

by Chris FamiltonIn a strong year for New Zealand americana music comes yet another release to boost the profile of a genre that has mostly lurked on the musical fringes. Delaney Davidson has been on the scene for a number of years touting his folk, blues and country music through endless tours and living very much the transient musician life. Now he has teamed up with a relative newcomer in Marlon Williams, best known as frontman in The Unfaithful Ways. The duo are unlikely bedfellows in song…See More

Album Review: Night Beds ~ Country Sleep

There is a romanticised back story to Winston Yellen, the man behind Night Beds, who dropped out of college, travelled the USA for five months before unknowingly renting a home in the woods that used to belong to Johnny Cash and finding the inspiration for Country Sleep. It is a great story but one that is irrelevant when it comes to the listener enjoying an album that possesses a number of peaks amid its standard indie folk…

Interview: Emma Swift

Emma Swift is something of golden light for Americana music, particularly here in Australia where it often leads a sheltered existence in mainstream media. Her time as host of the respected In The Pines on FBi Radio in Sydney and more recently as host of ABC National's Saturday Night Country has cast her as one of the most knowledgeable and personable figures in the local scene, opening listeners ears to both new and old country, from honky tonk…

Album Review: Son Volt ~ Honky Tonk

It has been two decades since Uncle Tupelo split and gave birth to the Jeff Tweedy-led Wilco and Jay Farrar’s Son Volt. Wilco have been the more adventurous while Son Volt have mostly remained loyal to the traditional tenets of folk and country music. Honky Tonk sees them extending that stylistic allegiance by honouring honky tonk, the strand of country music that was popularised in the bars of Bakersfeld, California in the 1950s and…

Interview: Mark Moldre

Mark Moldre has slowly but surely carved out a wonderful body of work with more than a decade of releases to his name both as a solo artist and prior to that with the band Hitchcock’s Regret. His first solo album The Waiting Room was a wonderful collection of songs of which we said in our Doubtful Sounds review “There are…
