CD reviews for Love and Theft

Whiskey on My Breath
Going the indie route generally is viewed as entrepreneurial. For Love and Theft's Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson, it was a necessity. The duo is proof that the chart summit is not all it's cracked up to be. After hitting number 1 with 2012's "Angel Eyes," they were dropped by RCA Nashville last year when their follow up singles flopped. With their final album for the label shelved and unable to legally recut the tracks they had recorded, "Whiskey On My »»»
Love And Theft CD review - Love And Theft
A lot has happened to Love and Theft since they debuted in 2009. They're down to a trio - Eric Gunderson and Stephen Barker Liles - since Brian Bandas left two years ago. They've switched labels as well, and instead of being forgotten after one hit single (Runaway), they're emerging again thanks to the single and lead-off track Angel Eyes. There's more than that going on though. Gunderson and Liles both sing well, trading leads and harmonizing often with each other (If You »»»
World Wide Open CD review - World Wide Open
What if you held auditions for lead singer within your band and everyone got the job? It happens. All three members of Love and Theft - Brian Bandas, Eric Gunderson, and Stephen Barker Liles - share the vocal duties, acting as each other's backups and plugging in harmonies (think early Eagles) wherever possible. In the wake of a tour opening for Taylor Swift, the pin-up gents from everywhere (Austin by way of Charlotte and Clearwater, Fla.) now venture forth with their debut to the eager »»»
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: No matter how you label Steep Canyon Rangers, they're all good – Steep Canyon Rangers may have long forged a career on their own, but they're probably inextricably linked with banjo man (and comedian and all around renaissance man in his spare time) Steve Martin. SCR has served as Martin's backing band on tour and also recorded with Martin and Edie Brickell. But as if to reinforce that this is a band in... »»»
Concert Review: Carlile reaps the rewards – Times have changed for Brandi Carlile. She pointed out well that when she first played the downtown venue nine years ago, she only sold 600-700 tickets. Safe to say that she's picked up a few fans along the way as she herself was happy to report that this show had gone clean in one of her most supportive cities. It's not all that hard to see why either.... »»»

No matter what you say, it's The Deslondes In the spirit of hard-hitting journalism, it seemed logical to ask Deslondes vocalist/guitarist Riley Downing the Mike-Wallace-from-60-Minutes question that has to be on everyone's mind: How the hell do you say the New Orleans-based band's name? "It's pronounced 'dez lawn,'" says Downing. "I know there's different ways that people have pronounced it over the course of history...... »»»
Watkins Family make time From their first, self-titled, major label release, the Allison Krauss-produced, "Nickel Creek," two-thirds of that trio - musical siblings Sara and Sean Watkins - have been in the musical spotlight continually since 1999.

Milk Carton Kids find themselves on "Monterey" Joey Ryan, half of acoustic folk duo the Milk Carton Kids, is girding his loins for the long trip from the band's Los Angeles home base to Australia. Although he's made this trip before, he's yet to acclimate completely to it.... »»»

While it is perhaps unfair to put too much focus on the producer of an album, the current weight of having a production credit from Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Jamey Johnson) is certain to garner notice from fans of high quality songwriters. Canadian artist Corb Lund decided to work with Cobb on his latest release, and the results are eye opening. »»»
Runaway Train CD review - Runaway Train
To those with even only a passing familiarity with the history of bluegrass, the name of this young band from Florida is an obvious tribute to the pioneers of the music as exemplified in the person of the late, great Lester Flatt. Perhaps more than any other genre of American music, though, bluegrass has lent itself to acts for whom the music is the "family business." »»»
South Broadway Athletic Club CD review - South Broadway Athletic Club
It's been over two decades since The Bottle Rockets vaulted into the wider consciousness with 1994's "The Brooklyn Side," typified by the heartbreaking Appalachian roots folk swing of "Welfare Music" and the scorching Crazy Horse pop of "Gravity Fails." Since then, frontman/primary songwriter Brian Henneman hasn't been afraid to mix things up or to take a break when necessary. »»»
