Jim Avett Talks About Family, Nashville, New CD "Tribes"

Jim Avett Talks About Family, Nashville, New CD "Tribes"

When asked about his plans for Father’s Day, Jim Avett simply said, “Not a thing. There’s nothing special about Father’s Day as far as I’m concerned. I get the gift of being a daddy every day.” If you’re ever lucky enough to spend an hour talking with this man, you’ll realize that every day really […]

The Boxmasters "Christmas Cheer" Vanguard

By Kyle McCraw Billy Bob Thornton and his new band have been busy this year, not only releasing a double disc debut, but also following with this Christmas album less six months later.

Neil Young "Sugar Mountain: Live at Canterbury House 1968" Reprise

Damn Right, Rebel Proud is a hellbilly bender of smoking train beats and testimonials of losing control…and loving it. Just as tight and energetic as Shelton’s last album, Straight to Hell, I think Damn […]

The Wood Brothers "Loaded" Blue Note

The Wood Brothers "Loaded" Blue Note

by Kyle McCraw Every so often, you stumble upon an album that is immediately indispensable. Such was my experience first hearing The Wood Brothers’ debut, “Ways Not to Lose,” and I was worried that their follow-up, “Loaded” would not live up to my high expectations. In a sense, it didn’t because this feels less like […]

My Morning Jacket “Evil Urges” (ATO)

My Morning Jacket  “Evil Urges” (ATO)

by Lindsay Eanet My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James’s bedroom must be a wonderful and frightening place. It might be the kind of bedroom that would be in a seduction scene in a bad ’70s adult film—he goes into the bathroom to “freshen up” and comes out in a scarlet silk robe, his once long, […]
