The record label throws in a few outtakes or live versions of the songs from the album and, […]
Various ArtistsInglourious Basterds SoundtrackA Band Apart/Warner Brothers By Al Kaufman First, two confessions: 1) I believe Quentin Tarantino to be the greatest living American director behind Martin Scorsese. 2) I embarrassingly admit that I have yet to see Inglorious Basterds. Without first seeing the movie, the songs on the soundtrack will need to stand on […]

The Ginger EnvelopeInvitation Air One Percent By Eileen Tilson Athens-based Ginger Envelope returns with its second full-length, Invitation Air (One Percent). Recorded to a 16-track analog tape, this album turns up the twang factor, showcasing Matt Stoessel’s pedal steel and Patrick Carey’s delicate, lazy, Bob Dylan-esque voice.
