"[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..." —Salon.com
"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
|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.
