Rezension

Zweites Album, genauso gut wie das Debüt.
"Diese sinnliche Stimme fordert, quengelt, kippt in den Höhen fast über und reibt sich ab und zu an der Melodik: Gillian Welch, "Hot Shot" in Nashville, hat Ihre ureigene Art, Country und Blues zu interpretieren. Dazu braucht sie nicht viel: Ihre unverwechselbare Stimme und die akzentuierte Gitarre von David Rawlings, zuweilen noch ein Banjo. Heruas kommen atmosphärische Songs, bei denen man weder an Lagerfeuer noch an Marlboro-Männer denkt, sondern an einsame Landstraßen im gottverlassenen Nirgendwo." (Audio)

Review

“Gillian Welch called her debut Revival, and this, her second release, could very well have been titled Preservation. What Welch has done on just two albums to revive, and now sustain, the quality of rural American music is no small feat. On Hell Among The Yearlings, Welch and songwriting partner David Rawlings reach more deeply and sincerely into American folk styles, using scraps of Appalachian mountain music, bluegrass and country to spin simple, profound tales. Welch is often tagged as a "neo-traditionalist," but that oxymoron denies the fact that her music is just as legitimate a part of the American folk canon as Jimmie Rodgers, Woody Guthrie or Bob Dylan. Her music is "neo" only because it is informed in the personal and political climate of the day (an aspect of good folk music long, long before recorded sound). The spare, desolate chorus from "Minerþs Refrain" ("Iþm down in a hole, down in a deep, dark hole") may seem to fix the song to a bygone era of pre-union miners, but itþs hard not to hear the songþs (or this albumþs) contemporary relevance.” (CMJ)<>
