But after a half-decade, Moonshine Hangover calls it quits this week, and I spoke to bassist/vocalist Will Johnson about the life and death of the band. Hair of ...   More

PAULA SINCLAIR, The Good Horse (self-released)


[AMERICANA] Paula Sinclair’s The Good Horse sets five Oregon poets’ words to music. Sinclair’s precise, emotive singing sounds amazing, as does Rob Stroup’s production and the work of players like Chris Robley and Paul Brainard (keys and guitar, respectively). But poetry is holy&mda...   More
