Margo Price

27 March 2016 - 01:14 AM

I thought I would go ahead and make an official topic for Margo Price (assuming there isn't one).

 

I've been keeping up with Third Man Records mostly through instagram. With all of the promoting and hype surrounding this new album, I thought I would give her a fair shot. I just recently opened up to listening to more country over the past 6 months. I've always enjoyed a few of the classic artists, and like most on here, I adore Loretta Lynn's Van Lear Rose. I started to make the transition through alt-country artists like Lydia Loveless (go listen to her song Verlaine Shot Rimbaud now), Ryan Adams, Old 97's, and the first Wilco album (which is fantastic). It's hard to find artists that can really bring out what the best of country used to be without maybe seeming a little insincere. I guess like Jack White always does for me (his solo work has added a little more twang to his sound), he sort of broke down a few barriers and maybe reservations I had about opening up to what is out there in the country world. 

 

Okay, enough rambling. Margo Price's new album Midwest Farmer's Daughter is a refreshing album for me. "Hands of Time" is my current favorite on the album. After watching her interview on CBS's Morning show this Saturday, I learned that the song is entirely true to her experiences, and that's where the honesty and truth really makes this country album feel so great. Just like Loretta Lynn's Van Lear Rose, you really feel like you're going on a journey with the artist and learning things about them and yourself along the way. Anyways, it's been a while since I created a topic or posted, but hopefully this is a good spot to discuss the album, live performances, and so on.

 




Thank You, Little Room

A post today by Kali Durga has brought up a lot of thoughts and good memories of this forum/community for me. I don't think I would be the die hard fan I am today without this place. Before Jack was a household name and before he got the credit he deserves, information wasn't as widely spread as it is now. The Little Room is where you would find everything you needed. And to this day, it still is... I've had a handful of people send me dvds and cds over the years and expected nothing in return. They knew at the time I had dial up, and it was impossible for me to get shows. You don't see that on other forums regularly.

I just wanted to thank Kingsnake and all of the moderators now and over the years for making this site such a big part of my musical experience. I still get on here almost every single day, and have over the past 11 years. Kali hasn't been around as long as some, but the dedication and love for this place and the music makes that completely irrelevant. If anything, it has brought the die hard out in me much more. Seeing someone with that sort of enthusiasm for it all... it reignites it in me.

I hope this place stays around for a long time. When I get a little more funds to toss around, I'll do what I can to make sure that happens. Anyways, I just wanted to be all sappy and express my love and respect for this forum and the people that make it such a positive and resourceful place.
