No Depression’s Best of July 2022 Playlist
Clockwise from left, Arlo McKinley, Amanda Shires, Dawes, Willi Carlisle, Tami Neilson, and Joe Pug were among the artists with notable new roots music releases in July.
Every month, the No Depression team compiles a list of our favorite songs from the month’s new releases. July seemed heavy on the alt-country and bluegrass sides of roots music, with grand returns from favorites like The Sadies and The Deslondes, as well as Irish ‘grassers We Banjo 3 and East Tennessee’s Circus No. 9. No Depression‘s Spotlight artist for the month, Willi Carlisle, proved his skill as a storyteller through music as well as through a journey of a first-person essay. Check out songs by those folks and many others in the playlist below, and read about a slew of other great albums in the Reviews section.
