The Jeff Austin Band 7/17/15

Streaming Audio

The Jeff Austin Band continues what Jeff Austin has been doing all along: making music, great music, that bridges east and west, old and new.

Anna & Elizabeth
"Anna & Elizabeth"
Free Dirt

Folk music is a lot more like golf than you might think, were you ever to think about this kind of thing. The more muscle you put into it, the more erratic you game becomes.

Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell
"The Traveling Kind"

There's a scene in the first season of "Nashville" where Rayna James approaches a young rock producer to make her next album. She's only written one song toward the project, but nevertheless, she's more interested in her sound.

Becky Buller
"'Tween Earth and Sky"
Dark Shadow Recording

Becky Buller has, until now, been known principally in the bluegrass world as a songwriter, and her list of credits bears that out. Her songs have been recorded by a who's who of the bluegrass world, and they in turn have had great success with her songs.

Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge
+180 Records

The cover photo of this disc is a composite of Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge, one image overlaid on the other. It's hard to see who belongs to which hands, or which head goes with which shirt, and indeed, the music on this disc continues in that vein -- they play so closely together, it is as if the two minds have become one. It's unreal.

Sean Watkins
"All I Do Is Lie"
Roaring Girl

If you were a musician and needed a place to hide -- say you're on the run from an angry spouse or the revenue man -- you might consider standing next to Chris Thile.

Hot Rize
"When I’m Free"
Thirty Tigers

If you’re not excited to hear that Hot Rize has a new album out, then you should be. The quartet is a defining band in the grand sweep of bluegrass, formed as a supergroup in a sense, though perhaps that only came after the fact.

Foghorn Stringband 9/27/14

Streaming Audio

If country music is tilapia -- bland, good with everything, unremarkable, nutritionally average -- then old time music, like that played by Foghorn Stringband, is a can of sardines: pungent, strong, an acquired taste, and also infinitely richer.

When she was 16, Sarah Jarosz came into the acoustic-music scene seemingly fully formed. She has continued to demand and hold our attention ever since.

Willie Watson
"Folk Singer Vol. 1"

The jacket design of Willie Watson's "Folk Singer Vol. 1" is pure 1963 camp: he's got a pipe, and the presentation is sparse to look like a Lomax field recording from the period.
