Lee's Listening Stack: Sixteen Sound Ways to Start off the Summer

Tom Freund Two Moons (Surf Road Records)Tom Freund is a gifted singer-songwriter who makes albums of exceptional merit, each a master work deserving of widespread recognition. Sadly, Freund is yet to achieve the kudos that match his work ethic; but, happily, that doesn’t stop him from trying. On his latest album, Two Moons, Freund creates a happy/sad dichotomy that matches the ying/yang suggested in the title. From the weary sprawl of opening track, “Angel Eyes,” to the wistful reflection of…See More

Raul Malo of the Mavericks Tells How the Band Got Back Where They Belong

In 1989, the year the Mavericks first convened, the divide between pop and country was still relatively wide, despite the progress made by bands like the Byrds, the Flying Burrito Brothers, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Poco and others of that ilk had made to close the distance many years before. Americana was a term that hadn’t quite entered the popular lexicon just yet, and Nashville was still off limits by and large to any artist who arrived sans a cowboy hat and a good ole boy attitude to…See More

Lee's Listening Stack: A Baker's Dozen for April

Moot Davis Goin’ In Hot (Crow Town Records)Like the Mavericks’ Raul Malo, Moot Davis is an old-school singer, a man who makes his music from both a selective and cerebral point of view.  Consequently, the songs included on this, his latest opus, find him emoting in a way that brings to mind the great country crooners so prevalent back in the day - iconic artists like Hank Sr., Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Charlie Pride, Porter Waggoner et. al. Aside from his singing, Davis is also a terrific…See More

Lee's Listening Stack: Three Fine Musical Brews For St. Paddy's Day Week

Young Dubliners Nine -9-NAOI (YD Records)A veteran band of hard working, hard rocking journeymen, Young Dubliners’ trademark Celtic rock belies the fact that this talented quintet have few familial ties to the Emerald Isles. Nevertheless, their boisterous delivery and ringing refrains convey the kind of passion and purpose worthy of a band comprised of native sons. Like Big Country, They incorporate traditional sounds into their rock ‘n’ roll regimen, with songs like ”We The Mighty,” “Say…See More

Lee's Listening Stack: Fifteen More Essential Albums

Speed the Plough The Plough & The Stars (Bar None)Speed the Plough was a band that ought to have been far more famous by now. With four albums to their credit -- spread across a productive 30 year career -- this New Jersey outfit demonstrated their penchant for superb song craft as part of their extraordinary output. Sadly, that glorious invention fell mostly on deaf ears and an indifferent public. It’s appropriate then that The Plough & The Stars attempts to up their ante, offering for…See More

Lees Listening Stack -- Ten Terrific Albums Worth Listening To Right Now

Reagan Boggs Quicksand (Reckless Bess Records)Reagan Boggs’s style comes from the same wellspring of heartfelt emotion, bittersweet reflection and bleak back porch desire that birthed great singers like Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wells, Dolly Parton, and Emmylou Harris. Her voice is filtered through a mix of hard wrought emotion and soothing sensitivity, the kind that breeds great balladry and stirs the senses simultaneously. Quicksand is Boggs’ third album to date, but given the fact that up until…See More

Riding That Train - The Awesome Array of Artists That Made the Sail Across the Sun Cruise an Awesome Adventure

I’m a big fan of music cruises. For me they are ideal entertainment. You get a bunch of great bands onboard, all the food you care to gorge yourself on, nice accommodations, a friendly service staff and a party atmosphere like no other. Suffice it to say, these excursions are like traveling seaworthy festivals, except at the end of the day when you’ve burnt yourself to a crisp you don’t have to go back to a tent and flounder in the mud. Instead, you can beat a retreat to your stateroom where…See More

Hello Lee

 

      As a featured contributor to No Depression, I’m particularly keen on getting your feedback for the following – Please forgive the intrusion if you don’t have the time or inclination to reply.

 

      I’ve posted the following to the No Depression discussion board – you can either respond there or alternatively drop me a line at shatchsurvey1@yahoo.co.uk

 

Thanks very much for your time

Kind regards,

Steve

 

 

 

My name is Steve Hatch and I’m currently conducting research for my Master’s in Songwriting at Bath Spa University in Bath, England (though I happen to be an ex-pat Georgia boy).  I would be extremely grateful if you could find the time to listen to the track (link below) and answer the 2 accompanying questions.  The more detail, the better of course (more to say in my final analysis) – but all feedback will be useful and very much appreciated.

 

Sadly, as this is an academic pursuit, there is a deadline.  Please reply by May 20th if at all possible so that I can have time to chew over your response and include it in my final write-up.

 

            The track: http://soundcloud.com/stevehatch

 

1)     Which artist/band(s) would you say the track is most similar to and why?

 

2)     Which genre(s) would you say the track belongs to and why?
