Girl Crazy And Single(s)
The 11 tracks on Lydia Loveless's "Boy Crazy And Single(s)" are split fairly evenly between the 5 songs found on her now out-of-print 2013 "Boy Crazy" EP and 6 singles and B-sides, most of which were not released previously.
The "Boy Crazy" EP tracks are real gems - lyrically compelling relationship tales with catchy melodies and radio-friendly choruses. "All The Time" is the perfect example. Loveless takes a gritty subject matter (a mistress coming to »»»
There are certain parallels between Lydia Loveless and kd lang; brilliantly and beautifully expressive voices, great writers and performers and just enough twang to be considered country, but far enough outside the mainstream to be largely rejected by the genre's star making machinery.

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: Rising Appalachia buck the mainsteam, and that's fine with them
Rising Appalachia would not be accused of being in the musical mainstream. Not too many bands who combine folk and Appalachian sounds with new world music could possibly be.

Concert Review: Bingham plays with something to prove
Ryan Bingham mainly focused on songs from his sixth album "American Love Song," for this lively show. Backed by a supportive band that also included two female backup singers and a fiddler, Bingham's eclectic setlist touched upon country, singer/songwriter folk, rock and blues.
Bingham reached for lively country sounds early on, with... »»»
