ROBBIE FULKS AND STEVE ALBINI INTERVIEW EACH OTHER IN CHICAGO READER

Quite the interview we have here. Chicago legends and musical encyclopedias Robbie Fulks and Steve Albini interview EACH OTHER in this Chicago Reader piece.

Fulks and Albini, guitarist of Shellac/Big Black and producer extraordinaire (PIXIES, Iggy And The Stooges, Robert Plant, and you know, a little band called Nirvana), go back a long way. Albini recorded and produced Fulks's classic albums 'Country Love Songs,' '13 Hillbilly Giants,' 'Couples in Trouble,' and his most recent release 'Gone Away Backward.' They are a technically terrifying twosome, we'd say.

LYDIA LOVELESS IS ONE OF SPIN'S BEST NEW ARTISTS OF 2014

Lydia Loveless is featured on the front page of SPIN as a Best New Artist of January 2014! 

"Like so many young creatives mining the nooks and crannies of American roots music, it's easy to categorize it as "alt-country" in the sense that it looks to the past as much as the present to craft a sound of the future, but Loveless' emotional honesty and lithe genre-melding are indeed singular."

Amen. And Happy New Year.
