Hayward Williams – Haymaker (2013)

Posted by on February 24, 2013 with No Commentsas

For the last decade, Williams has been quietly and urgently building a following and a career the old-fashioned way, song-by-song, album-by-album. First there was Uphill/Downhill. Then, Another Sailor’s Dream, followed by the breakthrough Cotton Bell. Mapping the trajectory from one to the next, the thing that remains is Williams’ graceful, resigned tone and timeless songwriting, […]

Wild Billy Childish & The Spartan Dreggs – Dreggradation (2012)

Posted by on February 23, 2013 with No Commentsas

Here be the Spartan Dreggs, Billy Chydish’s new ensemble. The Spartan Dreggs sank from the scum of the Vermin Poets — but kept the same line-up and similar songs. Once more Chydish drives from the back seat, playing tug-boat bass guitar. Wolf, of course, is playing the drum set and lead voice and guitar are […]

Raphael Wressnig & Alex Schultz – Soul Gift (2012)

Years of hard work and musical growth have given Lannie Flowers wisdom attained from near-stardom and a wealth of experiences. He explains the thinking behind his latest collection of jangly pop gems – “In 2008, ‘Same Old Story’ was released.

Here’s the third album from New York’s classic rock worshippers Endless Boogie, as they boogie endlessly (averaging about 10 minutes per song). Matt Sweeney is on it, and also helped produce, and there’s certainly similarities to his balls-out jam troupe Soldiers Of Fortune, but the animalistic ranting vocals and chugging riffs lend a slight Stooges-meet-ZZ […]

Wayward Vessel – Before The Grey (2012)

Posted by on February 20, 2013 with No Commentsas

Is there an emerging style that we can call “alternative bluegrass?” Bands such as Crooked Still, Mountain Heart, and Old Crow Medicine Show come immediately to mind. The alternative bluegrass sound is not the high, lonesome variety of Bill Monroe or the Stanley Brothers. It doesn’t possess the exciting polish of Flatt & Scruggs. Nor […]

Posted by on February 19, 2013 with No Commentsas

In 1990, Emmylou Harris’ run of superb mid-’70s albums was over, and she hadn’t yet assembled the Nash Ramblers, the acoustic band that gave her music a heady kick-start prior to her first striking collaboration with Daniel Lanois, Wrecking Ball.
