Ed Askew is best known, if he’s known at all, for his obscure 1968 album Ask The Unicorn on cult New York label ESP-Disk, home to such pioneers of the city’s free jazz scene as Sun-Ra, Ornette Coleman and Albert Ayler, and equally out-there folk-rock acts the Fugs, the Godz and Pearls Before Swine. Stolen […]

Lily & Madeleine – Lily & Madeleine (2013)

Posted by on October 29, 2013 with No Commentsas

If listening to Indianapolis-based Lily & Madeleine  gives you a vague sense of deja-vu, you’re not alone – it’s nearly impossible not to compare them to Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit. 16-year-old Lily and 18-year-old Madeleine Jurkiewicz are sisters, just like First Aid Kit’s Johanna and Klara Söderberg, but the connection runs deeper than […]

Georgia Fair – Trapped Flame (2013)

Posted by on October 28, 2013 with No Commentsas

Country-rock music is a tough genre to excel at without sounding generic. It’s all too easy to get caught in twangy riffs and vapid lyrics. With their new album, Trapped Flame, Georgia Fair come close to creating something unique in an overpopulated genre as they straddle the lines between country, blues, and folk music. Unfortunately, this diverse […]

Disappear Fear – Broken Film (2013)

Posted by on October 28, 2013 with No Commentsas

Back in 1987, Sonia Rutstein helped form Disappear Fear, a band with a remit to create enjoyable guitar pop that tackled the main issues of the day. A quarter of a century later, Rutstein has stuck to this model as she releases her 17th record. And while a 25 year long music career does not […]

Ambrosia Parsley – Weeping Cherry (2013)

Posted by on October 27, 2013 with No Commentsas

There’s a ghostly quality to Ambrosia Parsley, always has been. Over the course of four studio albums with Shivaree, the New York singer/songwriter’s voice came through the dreamy, dark pop in whispers, smoke signals amidst the prevailing caterwauls of the day. Visual images of her have likewise been somehow opaque, out of step with the […]

Leo Rondeau – Take it and Break It (2013)

Posted by on October 27, 2013 with No Commentsas

Leo Rondeau’s 2009 sophomore offering, Down at the End of the Bar, unfurled behind the local songwriter’s languid twang, but his third LP kicks into a raucous party. His drawl still draws, shading tones of Gram Parsons, yet peels almost breathlessly against the faster tunes and packed-tight phrasings. Opener “Love Again” bursts with a country […]

Janice Maynard – I’ll Take My Chances (2013)

Posted by on October 27, 2013 with No Commentsas

” Janice, whose voice I’ve recently seen described as being reminiscent of Janie Fricke, had me on the dance floor with her take of I’ll Need Someone To Hold Me (When I Cry). With control of the band, and adding one well-suited cover after another, Janice, showing her strength as front person, kept the room […]

Wille & The Bandits – Grow (2013)

Posted by on October 26, 2013 with No Commentsas

Music that is difficult to categorize, Wille and the Bandits have their own take on ‘rock’ music with ‘blues’ overtones and a ‘new view’ to songwriting. Based in Cornwall, they have been hitting the road running, with Wille Edwards on slide guitar and vocals, Matthew Brooks on six string bass and Andrew Naumann on drums. […]

George Jones – The Gospel Collection (2003)

Posted by on October 26, 2013 with No Commentsas

In 2003, could there be anything more desirable in country music than George Jones reunited with “retired” producer Billy Sherrill? Hardly. Some will complain that the pair should have worked on an album of countrypolitan or love or drinking songs instead of a two-CD, 24-track collection of gospel tunes, but that’s just cryin’ in their […]

Amanda Jo Williams – You’re the Father of My Songs(2013)

Posted by on October 26, 2013 with No Commentsas

Even when she’s on East Coast domestic duty raising three kids, Amanda Jo Williams remains an enigmatic L.A. musical mainstay. Over a decade into her wild tenure, most are at a loss of where to put her, how to describe her, and how to process such lines as “I need a fire in my chest […]

Amanda Jo Williams – Yes I Will, Mr. Man (2012)

Posted by on October 26, 2013 with No Commentsas

“Listening to Amanda Jo Williams’ rough-shod country-folk is like eating a squirrel stew supper before falling into bed, where you then lie awake and hear the haunted scrabbles of raccoons, coyotes and bears and wonder if you staggered out there, would you be eaten alive or inducted into some ritualistic animal society.” – L.A. Times […]
