Michelle Shocked has released a silent album: Inaudible Woman. You can buy the tracks here. Yep, it's been done before (JohnCage   4'33"). Take a listen and tell me what you think!I haven't listened to the album but I think it might sound like the last gasps of a fading career.See More

Celebrating 40 Years of Schoolkids Records: An Interview with Owner Stephen Judge

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Watergate. That's not really anything to celebrate, it's not an accomplishment, and what's that got to do with music? Nothing. It simply marks the inevitable passage of time. But, 2014 also marks the 40th anniversary of Raleigh, N.C.'s Schoolkids Records, which is an accomplishment and is definitely something worth celebrating.iTunes and streaming have cut into record sales and, due to…See More

The Backsliders' Raleighwood (EP Review and an Interview)

The Backsliders, Raleigh's royalty of hard-core honky tonk, are back with their first new material in 15 years. The band reformed in 2012 and the release of Hicktopia last year (long-lost recordings from 1999's Southern Lines) whet the appetite of long-time fans and left them hoping for some new material.  Not surprisingly, the…See More

Michael Rank's Deadstock (Review and Interview)

Deadstock (Louds Hymn) continues to explore the path and pathos forged on the three previous albums from Michael Rank and Stag (KIN, In The Weeds, and Mermaids). As Rank continues along his dusty rural road of alternative Appalachian music, he’s slowly and literally shedding what can’t be easily carried to…

Eric Brace talks about Hangtown Dancehall (Interview)

Hangtown Dancehall (Red Beet Records) might have been called a concept album forty years ago but "folk opera"--Eric Brace's phrase--is a better, more accurate description. Set in the1850s in California, Hangtown Dancehall is as authentic, as Americana, as it gets. Eric and Karl Straub created the saga, at least partially inspired by a song from that…

Hal, I'm not sure what this means to have accepted you as a "friend." Does this mean we can email each other directly? This request to be accepted as a friend  came with the announcement that Tonio K. agreed to do an interview with you for No Depression. Do you know when that's going to happen?

Thanks for the kind words.

Wow, thanks so much, Hal! Much appreciated. The interview you did for us last time was really huge for us, so I'm so psyched you're willing to give our new album a listen. Yes, if you can shoot me your address I'll send you a CD or if you prefer, a flash drive with our mp3s and album artwork.

Thanks again for your support. It really means a lot.

All the best,
Jess

Hi Hal,

Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your recent comment on a Kim's post about this year's Americana nominees at the Grammys here on No Depression. It means a lot to the folks who blog and post other content here to know that it's being noticed and appreciated. Since the majority of content on this site is crowd-sourced, community involvement is what makes everything here on ND possible. So, thanks again for taking the time to post comments - we really appreciate it!

I've heard Sons of Bill before...now I'm motivated to pay them some more attention. :)

Thanks for the music tip! Love that song! :) (Even though I, too, have an apartment in the ghetto that my mamma bought me. Looking forward to paying the bills soon, though...)

I do have a CD out...called The White Cat Sessions.  I recorded it at Jack's White Cat Studio.  I have all 13 tracks uploaded to my page here on No Depression.  You're lucky you have that trio album of Shake, Jack and Dana...it's long since been out of print.  cya

Hi Hal,

No I can't say I've ever seen Herschel.  Do you remember The Shake Russell Band from that era in Houston?  He was extremely popular at that time.  My producer, Jack Saunders, was then his bass player and they later became duo partners.  I'll check around for Herschel...good to meet you.

Thanks Hal.  I released the EP in March 2011.  I was lucky enough to have some folks pay attention to it and was featured in a piece on ND -

I'll keep you posted on new stuff as it becomes available. 

Of course, I'm no Linda Chorney :)
