Welcome! You’re browsing the No Depression Archives

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.

  • Learning Songwriting at the Feet of Steve Earle
    Steve Earle has his eye on the history books. Not for himself, necessarily - though I doubt he’d object - but for his art form, “songwriting as literature.” With Camp Copperhead, Steve seemed to be trying to secure this form a place in history. “Four days of singing and songwriting,” the marketing materials promised. “Hard core.” I’m a non-professional songw […]
  • Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin I, II & III 2014 Remasters (Album Review)
    Has any music reviewer ever missed the mark more than John Mendelsohn in his 1969 Rolling Stone critique of Led Zeppelin’s scorching, finely honed debut? After calling the album self-indulgent, he labeled Jimmy Page “a very limited producer and a writer of weak, unimaginative songs” and dismissed Robert Plant’s “strained and unconvincing shouting.” The album […]
  • Shawn Amos - The Reverend Shawn Amos Tells It (Album Review)
    The only thing wrong with the six-song EP The Reverend Shawn Amos Tells It, is that there are only six songs. Like James Brown said, "let’s hit it, and quit," Amos gathered together what he calls a "Gutbucket power trio," of Chris Roberts (guitar),Don Medina (drums),and Ed Terrio (bass) then threw down the tracks old school -- live, with […]
  • New Country is Boring Me
    My early music education was in classical and jazz. Through orchestration classes, composition, Baroque theory, etc., I learned a lot of music rules. Some of them have stayed with me, even though I don’t write music on a regular basis. In jazz improv, never sit on the fourth scale degree. In orchestration, don’t cross your voices. In composition, never repea […]
  • Hook & Anchor - Self-titled (Album Review)
    Hook & Anchor are a new Portland, Ore.-based band with something of a pedigree. Bringing together Blind Pilot’s Kati Claborn, Luke Ydstie, and Ryan Dobrowski with veteran old time specialist Gabrielle Macrae (of the Macrae Sisters), and Erik Clampitt of Clampitt, Gaddis & Buck and Power of County, all of the individual members of the band… […]
  • Five Questions: Louise Goffin
    As the child of Carole King and Gerry Goffin, singer-songwriter Louise Goffin comes from musical stock. But genetics never grant a free pass or guarantee a successful career. Just ask Ben Taylor or Holly Williams. Sure, it's a leg up, but an artist still has to prove themselves on their own merit. So that's what Goffin has done, slowly and steadily […]
