Bella White’s Among Other Things is challenging, but, among other things, a robust next step.
Category: Album Reviews
World Records, No. 12: George Jones – ‘I Am What I Am’ (1980)
George Jones certainly is what he is, but at least here, it’s a better version of himself.
World Records, No. 11: Rosanne Cash – ‘Seven Year Ache’ (1981)
An album that stands proudly on its own, still aching all these years later.
Album Review: Caitlyn Smith – ‘High & Low’
That weird thing where two great halves comprise a slightly lesser whole.
Album Review: Jake Worthington – ‘Jake Worthington’
A solid neotraditional country effort.
Album Review: Ruston Kelly – ‘The Weakness’
The Weakness is certainly Ruston Kelly’s messiest album yet … but there’s a resonance here I can’t deny.
Album Review: Robbie Fulks – ‘Bluegrass Vacation’
The sort of vacation I don’t want to end – the first true gem of the year for me.
Album Review: Amanda Fields – ‘What, When and Without’
A slow-burn record, but a rewarding one if given the chance.
EP Review: Mae Estes – ‘Before the Record’
Short, sweet, and to the point.
World Records, No. 10: Guy Clark – ‘Old No. 1’ (1975)
Old No. 1 … even after all these years.
