Alt/Country Magazine Loves R&B!!

If you're looking for a different take on year end polls, check out the Jan./Feb. issue of No Depression. What's #1? Why it's Ry Cooder's latest, which I have no interest in hearing. Also on the ND Top 40, Bettye Lavette, Lizz Wright and Kanye West, which means that its critics are listening to more than Alt/Country records. Although No Depression changed it's title moniker to include all types of music, it's latest issue is still top heavy with Country music styled stuff: A good John Morthland article on Bobby Bare (who like Tom T. Hall has been forgotten by Music City historians). Anyway, check out the issue. Just reading it made me order the Lavette, Robbie Fulks and Gogol Bordello (who gets a mention in the poll essays).
