The Wooks- Glory Bound & Della Mae- Butcher Shoppe EP reviews

Glad to have had two reviews published at Country Standard Time this week. The Wooks’ Glory Bound was released in the autumn of 2018, but was only assigned and sent to me this month. What a set!

Lonely Heartstring Band- Smoke & Ashes review

I had anticipated Lonely Heartstring Band would make an Alberta festival appearance this summer, and perhaps they will. However they won’t be at the Blueberry Bluegrass Festival, and that is too bad–they are one of the truly intriguing, leading edge bands in the new acoustic Americana universe. My review of their second album has been… Continue reading Lonely Heartstring Band- Smoke & Ashes review

Chris Hillman- Bidin’ My Time review

Chris Hillman Bidin’ My Time Rounder Records Chris Hillman. With those two words, Americana is defined. The fact that he was once in a band called the Scottsville Squirrel Barkers should have told me he was going to be my Americana touchstone, but I didn’t discover that group’s sole recording until years after I fell under his… Continue reading Chris Hillman- Bidin’ My Time review

Steve Martin & Steep Canyon Rangers- The Long-Awaited Album review

I apologize to all readers, groups, and promo folks/labels who have been expecting more from me the past few weeks. Work is busy, and I don’t have time to write although I try- I have (in my head) written much of a John Reischman & the Jaybirds review, know I need to get to the… Continue reading Steve Martin & Steep Canyon Rangers- The Long-Awaited Album review
