Happiness begins with No Depression

April 26, 2007

I am a magazine junkie, and one of my favorite fixes arrived last week. No Depression claims to “survey the past, present, and future of American music (whatever that is).” The magazine began by focusing on alt country, but has grown more eclectic over the years.

The May-June 2007 issue features stories on Uncle Earl, Elizabeth Cook, and Bright Eyes. Don’t know who those people are? I didn’t either, which is why I get this magazine. No Depression has wonderful CD reviews as well. On my list to get are Mavis Staples’s “We’ll Never Turn Back” as well the new collaboration between Ricky Skaggs & Bruce Hornsby.
