The newest album by Grant-Lee Phillips is Walking in the Green Corn. It’s 10 songs are drawn from Phillips’ intensive investigations into his native lineage. Phillips, who is Muskogee (Creek), elliptically explores the intersection of past and present, personal and political. While the songs delve deeply into the subconscious mystery of his own back-story, they simultaneously reveal the resonance and insight of ancient myth in parallel to contemporary man’s emotions, actions, and errors.Composed in a concentrated burst over the course of a few winter months, Walking in the Green Corn came about almost too quickly to censor — the unfiltered sum of years of rumination and discovery. As the days became shorter, the nocturnal Phillips became more productive.

It might be redundant to say it, but it’s true nonetheless; you only get one debut. This has two applications; you only have one chance to make a first impression on your audience, and you only have one opportunity to write, record, and release an album while being an entirely undefined act – no expectations, no comparisons, the options are literally infinite. It’s nearly impossible to overthink a debut album, and this seems to ring extremely true for the Bloodhounds. Everything is so very natural, raw, unpolished, and genuine. The Bloodhounds have been compared to early Rolling Stones, and that’s not an extremely far-fetched comparison to be made. Obsessed with delivering sparsely-decorated but fiercely energetic tracks in a rootsy manner, the L.A. four-piece shines on their debut release, Let Loose!

Family is a union of folk-rock royalty Richard and Linda Thompson, along with younger pretenders: sons Teddy and Jack, daughter Kami and her husband James Walbourne, and grandson Zak Hobbs. The idea and ensuing catalyst for the album came from Teddy, the project’s proficient producer. Since his parents split up when he was just six, it could be tempting to view the exercise as a form of belated group therapy — a kind of “meet the folkers.” Yet this collaborative venture does not overtly rake over old coals but is essentially a celebration of all things Thompson — the sincerity, the quirks, and not least that they all sing and play rather well.
