    Thanks, Karin!  If they can do opera, female rappers, and sociopolitical songs (one of my favorite), they can do this! :)

  • Brad Deckard

    Lucinda Williams is like the Flannery O' Conner of music.  She is a must for this playlist (which I love by the way).  Also it doesn't get more steeped in southern gothic than the classic Ode to Billie Joe and Polk Salad Annie.  Can you add these?  I think if you give them a listen, you'll agree they fit in well!

    Hey, we are a Southern Goth band from south Florida looking to link up with more known bands to tour with across the U.S.
    Would you all mind listening to our music and perhaps suggest bands we could be perfect to open for? That would be awesome.
