New Playlists: Country Music and 2012 Albums Vol.4

Two new playlists added to the Playlists Tab ↑*:

1.) The C-Word: You Say You Don’t Like Country (You’re Wrong) (filed under “Record Listening Party Playlists”)

A simple premise for this evening of records… Most people eschew the notion of “Country Music” because they associate it with a certain Pop Country sound replete with twang.  (Personally there is some good stuff there but I digress…)  However, there is a whole lot of great records that owe their musical etymology to the American Country music tradition.  Here are five records that, I hope, will change your thoughts.


  • Johnny Cash – At Folsom Prison
  • Gram Parson – Grievous Angel
  • Neko Case – Blacklisted
  • Uncle Tupelo – Anodyne
  • Calexico – Feast of Wire

2.) 2012 Albums Vol. 4  (filed under “New Music”)
