Hear Hank like he's never been heard before, demonstrating a stylistic range from pure honky-tonk to cowboy jazz and swing
A rollicking good time for big and little folks alike—folks who know that spiders are cool, that the dark can be fun, and that dinosaurs love Santa Claus just as much as the next guy.
Biram throws down some feral, amped-up Delta blues just as easily as stone cold country weepers that'll get the girls all dewy-eyed with faith and desire, and even some heavy metal field hollers—with the emphasis on holler.
EVERY track the Old 97s recorded for us specially re-mastered for vinyl and put into this limited edition gatefold DOUBLE LP
With their preternatural ability to play with and play off one another, the Duo lays it out there with nothing to cover it up. And while many mistake “stripped down” for “easy” or “simple,” it takes a fearless mastery to pull the tortured blues out of the delta, the punk thunder out of rockabilly, and the deep, dark and glorious pathos out of cabaret.
Within the first song, you just know you’re hearing something special, that you are party to the unknown and exhilarating paths being explored by an artist on the creative ascendancy.
Roams o’er the vast landscape of American music without so much as a stumble.
Neko Case and The Sadies got together for this little tip of the hat to the time honored country music trope of the murder ballad.
A DIGITAL ONLY SINGLE
Sadly, the "2000 Funerals'" title is mournfully out of date. The song, however, becomes more and more powerful.
Confident and cohesive, the record is a dark treaty on the violent and self destructive tendencies of society at large. Ha Ha Tonka take listeners on a complex tour of the South...This record is spot on, dynamic, harsh but lovely. It’s a novel wrapped up into a record.
Kelly and Neko nestle up to each other, with only a thin layer of vinyl betwixt them, and channel the rebellious spirit of the Coal Miner's Daughter.
A sometimes sparse, sometimes exuberant blend of folk, deep country and wide-open spaces from this co-founding member of punk legends X. Subdued, but no less edgy.
A fun-filled themed split single. Whiskeytown spins their tires on the gravel on this pedal to the floor rocker, while Neko sings a mournful ballad about her fave car.
Rosie Flores—the Rockabilly Filly, and Jon Langford—head Mekon, Waco Brother and conductor of the Chicago-based collective the Pine Valley Cosmonauts, combine forces to blast a sonic contrail stretching from Texas to Wales.
Rock’s bread and butter is romantic tragedy. This album takes all that, crushes it up, and emerges with something new, crisp, compelling and incredibly intelligent. Sure, they rock, but they also read.
Contains never released recordings; some are so rare that in many cases they are the only recorded versions of the songs.
