    So In-Cline-D

    MANDY BARNETT I've Got a Right to Cry (Sire) Let's belabor the obvious: I've Got a Right to Cry, Mandy Barnett's second album, sounds like a long-lost Patsy Cline record. The reasons for this aren't mysterious. Cline's producer, Owen Bradl...

    Urbane Cowboys

    Like a lot of inspired musical schemes -- say, community radio stations such as KDHX or indie labels like Rounder or Righteous Babe -- Twangfest began in naive enthusiasm and a pocketful of change and devotion. Like a lot of DIY plans, it seemed doom...
