Don Williams – And So It Goes (2012)

Posted by Zorn on June 30, 2013 with No Commentsas

Don Williams legions of fans across the globe have long been hoping, but likely not expecting to hear new recordings from him again. He has been pretty determined to spend most of his time on his Tennessee farm, quietly, with his family and for over four decades, country music s Gentle Giant has been known for doing what he wants to do. So it s both exciting and a very welcome surprise to announce the release of the brand new Don Williams album And So It Goes, on Sugar Hill Records on June 19th, his first since 2004. It is a release very much in the classic Williams mode mellow yet rhythmic, life-affirming yet thoughtful, serenely masculine, and loaded with singularly strong, memorable songs and consummate vocals.

Charlie Parr – Barnswallow (2013)

Posted by Zorn on June 29, 2013 with No Commentsas

chBarnswallow is country blues musician Charlie Parr’s eleventh full-length release. Parr shines again both as a performer and songwriter on eight originals which are sandwiched between traditional folk songs taught by local blues musicians Dave “Snaker” Ray and “Spider” John Koerner of Koerner, Ray & Glover. The Minnesota blues and folk scene permeates the album, informing the content, musicians (including Mikkel Beckmen on washboard and percussion; Dave Hundreiser on harmonica, and resonator mandolin; and wife Emily Parr on backing vocals), and studio as this was recorded live to tape at The Winona Arts Center.

Harry Manx – Wise And Otherwise (2002)

Posted by Zorn on June 29, 2013 with No Commentsas

To call Harry Manx a wizard of slide guitar is perfectly true, but not the whole story. Add banjo, harmonica, and the Indian veena to that, and you’re approaching the real story. On Wise and Otherwise he demonstrates the full range of his talents, which are firmly based in the blues, but extend far beyond […]

Grandaddy – Pretty Mess By This One Band (1996)

Posted by Zorn on June 28, 2013 with No Commentsas

The album is at its weakest when the band seems to reproduce far too many American college-favored indie bands already out there. For instance, after a brief intro, the first full song — “Taster” — fails precisely because it never ascends out of its mound of discordant guitars and mumbling drawls. It’s not bad songwriting, […]

The gorgeously intimate new Alela Diane album is difficult to classify. Her unadorned voice takes center stage to sparse acoustic instrumental arrangements. Is this country folk or torch song jazz, adult contemporary or art song? The answer doesn’t really matter as much as the fact that this is truly a marvelous creation. The record’s only […]
