Muscle Shoals

According to the native Yuchi people, the Tennessee river (or in their language The Singing River) is home to the Singing Woman, whose songs contain the wisdom to answer all of life’s questions. Sitting alongside the Tennessee River, Muscle Shoals seems to have absorbed that spirit as a disproportionately vast number of seminal recordings have […]

Autoluminescent

I’ve always found it a bit frustrating just how little attention a lot of pioneering musicians get from the music press.
