Elephant Revival — Break in the Clouds

Family-style folk that's sure to please


Folk

Stephen Carradini
Remarkable consistency marks “Break in the Clouds” from Colorado-by-way-of-Tahlequah folksters Elephant Revival. Although the album is 14 songs long, there’s not a bad tune in the bunch.

Gander at Guthrie

The making of 'Woody at 100.'

With all the Woody Guthrie coverage in today’s Gazette to commemorate the Okie folkie’s centennial, you may wish to take a peek at the mini-documentary The Making of Woody at 100.

It details Smithsonian Folkways’ efforts at compiling the new, three-disc box set, Woody at 100, which:
• came out yesterday;
• features 57 songs in total, 21 of them previously unreleased performances and six never-before-heard; and
• includes a 154-page book with essays and art galore.

Take a gander at the label’s restoration process and behind-the-scenes work:

Music Made Me: Laura Leighe

Local singer Laura Leighe reveals the five albums that perfected her pop music.

Boyz II Men, II (1994)
I believe this was the first CD that I bought with my own allowance at Duncan’s local music store. It’s another really fun, soulful album — vocally, harmonically, musically outstanding. I remember lying on my bedroom floor and studying the lyrics, mesmerized for hours. I loved the singles, but my favorites were the opening track, “Thank You,” and the last track, their gorgeous, soul-grabbing rendition of The Beatles’ “Yesterday.” I was just learning about harmony at the time, and loved listening to their rich, thick, beautiful sound.

Toby Keith — Drinks After Work


Country

Louis Fowler
“Guilty pleasure” is one of the dirtiest phrases in the English language — a term created to make fans of something considered mostly unpopular by the ruling pop-culture intelligentsia feel shame.
