A conscious backlash to bro-country's skinny jeans and faux-rap, Midland mines a beloved but "uncool" slice of history: the mid-tempo neo-traditionalism of '80s kings George Strait and Clint Black. To charming advantage, the Texas trio has stripped away the earnestness and layered on a mischievous wink. But don't be fooled by the retro irony of their Nudie suits: These hipsters aren't just play-acting. They can do boot-scooting tracks (the swinging "Mr. Lonely"), heartache tunes (Tex-Mex-tinged "Put the Hurt on Me") and barfly ballads — the two-step shuffle "Every Song's a Drinkin' Song" features a drunken-sounding dobro — with equal conviction. There are also genuine surprises. The Southern rock strut of "21st Century Honky Tonk American Band" suddenly shifts into a Glen Campbell-esque dream sequence. And "Lost in the Night" finds singer Mark Wystrach affecting a husky whisper — "dancing at the Holiday Inn, your fingers through my belt loops" — alongside both pedal steel and yacht-rock sax. What could be a mess drifts just on the right side of camp and makes you think maybe these guys actually are reinventing the wheel. © Qobuz

Album Description

A conscious backlash to bro-country's skinny jeans and faux-rap, Midland mines a beloved but "uncool" slice of history: the mid-tempo neo-traditionalism of '80s kings George Strait and Clint Black. To charming advantage, the Texas trio has stripped away the earnestness and layered on a mischievous wink. But don't be fooled by the retro irony of their Nudie suits: These hipsters aren't just play-acting. They can do boot-scooting tracks (the swinging "Mr. Lonely"), heartache tunes (Tex-Mex-tinged "Put the Hurt on Me") and barfly ballads — the two-step shuffle "Every Song's a Drinkin' Song" features a drunken-sounding dobro — with equal conviction. There are also genuine surprises. The Southern rock strut of "21st Century Honky Tonk American Band" suddenly shifts into a Glen Campbell-esque dream sequence. And "Lost in the Night" finds singer Mark Wystrach affecting a husky whisper — "dancing at the Holiday Inn, your fingers through my belt loops" — alongside both pedal steel and yacht-rock sax. What could be a mess drifts just on the right side of camp and makes you think maybe these guys actually are reinventing the wheel. © Qobuz

The Resilience and Rebellion of Lucinda Williams

If you're looking for Lucinda Williams' worldview in her music, it can be found somewhere between "Drunken Angel," and "Get Right With God." Coupled with genuine empathy for the foibles of humanity—and respect for the allure, urgency and wreck 'n' ruin of relationships—Williams has always had a healthy awe for the powers of good and evil, a looming sense of the vigilant almighty. From the album's title to the worried cover photo, a sense of misgiving hangs over the songs on her compelling new album, Good Souls Better Angels.

Americana, America Through its Roots

The title may sound like a nebulous marketing ploy, and yet for about twenty years, Americana had been summarizing this blend of rock, country, blues and rhythm ‘n’ blues. And like in every big family, you’ll find almost every type of person: the rebellious daughter, the cultivated uncle, the agitated father, the driven cousin, etc.

Johnny Cash Behind Bars

Two legendary live albums released at the end of the sixties gave Johnny Cash’s career a huge boost and turned him into an international star. They were two records were unlike any others: they were recorded in prison. But how did the Man in Black find himself in such an unusual concert hall?
