"[There] lies a voice of such soulful depth and interpretive command that it all but demands to be measured for the tiara and elevated to the throne. In short, Underdog is star time..." —

"Her taste is impeccable [and] the result is a song cycle of sorts that chronicles the highs and lows of love and romance -- the torment and pain of loss and the warm, intoxicating rush of bliss." —Memphis Flyer

Kelly Hogan Beneath the Country Underdog

BS 062 2000 $6.95
DigitalAmazon - SALE!FinaiTunes

On Beneath the Country Underdog, Hogan gets the backing she deserves from The Pine Valley Cosmonauts (featuring members of the Waco Brothers, and The Mekons) -- with made-in-Chicago production by Jon Langford.

The 11 tracks -- ranging from Hogan’s haunting originals, to covers of Johnny Paycheck "It's Mighty Thin Line," Willie Nelson ("I Still Can't Believe You're Gone"), Conway and Loretta ("Wild Mountain Berries"), and a killer version of The Magnetic Fields ("Papa Was A Rodeo") -- also feature a slew of guest stars, including Neko Case, Edith Frost, John Wesley Harding, and Robbie Fulks.

When asked to name her musical influences for this effort, Hogan rattled off a list that went something like "Lotte Lenya, Charlie Rich, Howard Tate, and Ronnie Van Zant..." Well, that sounds like 39:49 minutes of sobbing, throbbing, balls-out, country soul to me, kids. Bring your chub to the club. Over and out.
