Indie Pop

The seventh studio long-player from the mercurial Canadian pop/country crooner and the follow-up to 2016's excellent Mosey, Modern Pressure is a heady and earworm-heavy collection of knotty indie power pop dressed up in countrypolitan clothing.

Hillbillies in Hell: Country Music's Tormented Testament

January 15, 2016

If you want to learn about the side of country music Ken Burns was afraid to tell you about in his recent PBS documentary, this is a strange and wildly entertaining place to start. These 28 vintage C&W rarities are full to the brim with bad behavior of all kinds -- sex, drugs, murder, Satan, and Charles Manson are just a few of the topics covered here, made to sound just as scary and/or fun as they deserve.
