Fox Confessor Brings The Flood CD review - Fox Confessor Brings The Flood
Chanteuse Neko Case seems to have a taste for animal flesh - at least in the titles of her albums. Her last CD, "The Tigers Have Spoken," featured Case in a live setting. Having returned to the studio (after a stint with her other project, Canadian power popsters The New Pornographers), Case seems to be pushing into new terrain. Her voice is more ethereal in selections such as "Margaret vs. Pauline" or "Hold On, Hold On" (which also features great rat-a-tat-tat drums by Travis Good). »»»
Blacklisted
Neko Case is blessed with a dynamic clarion of a voice- emotionally powerful, yet expressing a beguiling openness and vulnerability. On this, her third full-length record, she's left the scattershot variety of her debut, "The Virginian" and the torch and twang-rock of her follow-up "Furnace Room Lullaby" behind for darker territory. The new record is dark, forbidding and dread-filled. Case's writing, arguably more effective than ever (all but two songs are her own), sets the mood that's then »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Kristofferson gives insight, but no easy answers – When they say music gets better with age, they're not always just talking about songs alone; sometimes they're also referring to the listener. When Kris Kristofferson sings, "Well, I woke up Sunday morning/With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt," to smartly open "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," he... »»»
Concert Review: No sugarcoating, Welch dishes out an experience – Gillian Welch (accompanied, as always, by master guitarist David Rawlings), celebrated her "The Harrow & The Harvest" album with a powerful night of music. She apologized many times for the utter unhappiness expressed through this album's songs, admitting it's "not the most chipper album" at one point.... »»»

Most notably, Bear worked...... »»»

Losing Sleep CD review - Losing Sleep
Chris Young has one of the best country voices, and it's always a pleasure to hear him sing. But it's disappointing when the title cut sounds more like the groove to a Justin Bieber song than anything truly country.  »»»
