No Depression has been the foremost journalistic authority on roots music for well over a decade, publishing 75 issues from 1995 to 2008. No Depression ceased publishing magazines in 2008 and took to the web. We have made the contents of those issues accessible online via this extensive archive and also feature a robust community website with blogs, photos, videos, music, news, discussion and more.

Waxed - Record Review from Issue #70 July-August 2007

Ann Savoy & Her Sleepless Knights

If Dreams Come True (Memphis International)

Ann Savoy has explored Cajun and zydeco music and collaborated with Linda Ronstadt (last year’s Adieu False Heart). Her new disc is a well-executed set of jazz-tinged standards that demonstrates her versatility as a vocalist. Savoy swings on the title track, co-written by Benny Goodman, and convincingly explores the emotional complexities of Rodgers & Hart’s “Bewitched, Bothered And Bewildered”. In a nod to her Louisiana roots, Savoy performs three songs in French, including a Gypsy-flavored version of Django Reinhardt’s “Melodie Au Crepuscle”. Her band, which includes four-fifths of the Red Stick Ramblers plus her sons Wilson and Joel, provides strong support without overpowering her vocals. The all-acoustic setting provides a vibrant, intimate backdrop for the songs.
