Rhapsody Blog Top 25 Roots Albums of the… wait for it… Decade

BEST ROOTS ALBUMS OF THE DECADE
BY Justin Farrar

6. Moviola, Dead Knowledge, 2007

“If you’re a purist, then many of the jams you’re about to encounter are going to confound, maybe even offend, you. And that’s because I have a very liberal (some would say skewed) definition what constitutes roots music. Fellow Rhapsody scribe Chuck Eddy once used the phrase “art country” to describe my aesthetic sensibilities. And he’s right. I love rootsy stuff, but I also love psychedelic weirdness and underground-bred eccentricities. The aughts were a pretty darn good decade for the intersection of these various proclivities. With the alt-country movement fragmenting and thus relinquishing its grip on the basic concept of a non-mainstream folk-based genre…” –More

Double Dip

Esteemed online musichead journal Dusted posted a lengthy double review today of Dead Knowledge and Broken Horses. Nice when folks get what’s going on, and what has been goin’ on, in this clear a manner, yes.

Dusties in Dusted

The ultra-fine web music site Dusted asked us some of our favorite records a while back, and they got around to posting it. Hard to keep it to a handful…

Muzzled

A nice Dead Knowledge bit in Muzzle of Bees, which it looks like is from the great state of Wisconsin. Cheers, Mr. Muzzle.

Stream’s dry

The full album stream of Dead Knowledge is now officially, yes, dead. Was live for nearly four weeks or so, and a couple tracks remain streaming over at the imeem page, but from here on, hopefully if you’d like to hear the full record, you can get one over at Catbird HQ or iTunes.

Nail on the head

Was just lamenting (the other night) about the ever-increasing capsulization, 50 words-or-less, blurb-o-matic times we currently exist in with regard to most music (and all arts) criticism. Like I would rather read a lengthy, well-argued piece of criticism that absolutely loathed our record, rather than another bio-summary, 30-word blurb about the facts at hand. Just don’t bother…

And then something like this shows up.

I’m surely glad he likes our record, but I’m even more glad that Kevin–and the few bloggers of his ilk that can write coherently and argue a point pro or con–are operating in the current bleak landscape.

Release show is tomorrow night at Used Kids.
