Album review: Ned Evett - Treehouse

by Nick DeRisoYou're to be forgiven for expecting this to be a guitar record. First, there's Ned Evett himself -- a master of this specially created fretless version of the instrument. And his producer, gearhead Adrian Belew.Heck, Evett has toured with Joe Satriani, for chrissakes.Yet here, on Evett's sixth solo release, there are precious little brain-pretzelling solos. It's not that kind of record. Instead, Evett -- winner, you're reminded, of the 2003 North American Rock Guitar competition…See More

One Track Mind: Kevin Gordon, "Colfax"

Returning with his first new album in seven years, Nashville singer-songwriter Kevin Gordon drills in on the second half of that descriptor -- telling stories that resonate like age-old fables, even on the first listen. Produced by Dove Award winner Joe McMahan (Freedy Johnston, Allison Moorer), Gloryland is another milestone in a career that's already seen Gordon craft well-regarded sides with producer Garry Tallent of the E Street Band, singer Lucinda Williams and Bo Ramsey, now producer and…See More

Review: Tom Waits - "Bad As Me"

by Mark Saleski

 

Back when Tom Waits released Real Gone, I used the concept of the essential nature of a pair of bluejeans to illustrate how that record could be used to get at what Waits' music is all about — an introductory album of sorts, one with a high score on the "Waits-y Scale."

 

Much of the idea of Waits'…

One Track Mind: John Prine, "Hello In There"

by Nick DeRiso

 

It was the first John Prine song I ever heard, and it still sends shivers of sad wonder. Learning more about his life around the time that "Hello In There" was composed only gives me a deeper appreciation for Prine's innate sense of humanity -- and the depth of talent he had as a writer from the first.



This newly released version, recorded the year before Prine's career-making self-titled debut, is included on The…

Hi there

 

      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?

Hi, I would love to email an electronic EPK kit for 77 El Deora which just released their third & newest CD "The Crown & The Crow's Confession" on Jan 1'st. Would you be willing for me to send it your way? Thanks for the consideration. Tanya
