Howdy,

Big Backlog of music going into rotation this week. Highlights for me include Rod Picott’s Welding Burns which has some amazingly detailed and gritty lyrics and David Olney’s Film Noir which is bluesy music that sounds exaclty like you’d expect to hear in a film noir setting.

On episode 42 of the Taproot Podcast, Bill Anderson and Joe Doerr of Churchwood deconstruct the blues, talk about what it’s like to get together again after all these years, and teach us street Latin…..


Dig Deep,

Howdy,
Lots of good music going into rotation this week. Starting off, there the Bettysoo / Doug Cox collaboration, Lie To Me. It’s a CD of covers that do a good job of highlighting Bettsoo’s voice and Doug Cox’s Guitar work.

Also this week, the collaborative effort from Jesse Lege, Joel Savoy, and Caleb Klauder’s Foghorn Stringband. It’s cajun. It’s country. It’s upbeat. What more needs to be said.

Daryl Hance, of MOFRO fame has a CD out, Hallowed Ground. If you like MOFRO’s brand of Florida Swamp Funk, you’re gonna love this one.

Lastly, The Mississippi Cadillac Blues Band has a good collection of good old fashioned 12 bar blues out called Stone Cold.

Keep sending in the good music!

On episode 41 of the Taproot Podcast, Jody Blackwell discusses going native, her first guitar, her Mickey Mouse tie, and playing the subways in Boston……

Dig Deep,

Two great voices, a guitar, and a dobro is all it takes for Bettysoo and Doug Cox to knock it out of the park with their latest CD, Across The Borderline: Lie To Me.  Bettysoo’s voice is strong, feminine, and mesmerizing, and Doug Cox’ guitar riffs are a perfect complement, soulful, tight, and clear. The CD a set of well chosen covers that highlight the duo’s strengths and range from old-school Doug Sahm to more modern fare like Jane Siberry. Highlights for me are “Lie To Me,” and “Boxcars.”

Jesse Lége & Joel Savoy are a long-time due playing cajun music who recently teamed up with Caleb Klauder and the Foghorn String Band to create the Cajun Country Revival and they’ve put out a CD called The Right Combination which is full of traditional cajun songs plus a few traditional country songs done up cajun style. As you might expect, the CD is pure fun, front to back. This music will make even everyone want to dance, even if just on the inside. Highlights for me are “Ouvre La Porte” (Open the Door), “Tippy Toeing,” and “Corina”. But honestly there’s not a bad track on this CD. Great music for the road.

The New Familiars have long been local legends around Charlotte and for good reason. They are first and foremost a rock band. but there’s just enough mandolin and other bluegrass/twangy elements to their music to make it “southern” and there’s more than a few head nods to country music. You might think of them as The Band for the 21str century, but I don’t think The Band ever rocked this hard. Their latest CD, Between The Moon And The Morning Light takes a lap around the infield, tagging all the bases of a southern rock album. The highlights for me are  “Icaraus,” “New River,” “Wait,” and “All In All.”
