Old Time Feeling (Video Deluxe)

Though the boundaries between indie aesthetics and mainstream success have blurred significantly this millennium, S.G. Goodman stakes out a shrewdly oppositional position in the rural-accented indie rock of her debut album, Old Time Feeling. Hailing from small-town Kentucky, she sought production input from her home state’s most experimental rock architect, Jim James, and recorded with her longtime local bandmates, capturing an instrumental attack that ranges from riotous to delicate, above which she sings in an artful, serrated warble. She has a way with both pining melancholy (see: "If It Ain't Me Babe" and "Red Bird Morning") and class-conscious yet tradition-flouting dual defiance, as showcased in the clever and compelling way she simultaneously challenges outside condescension and regional resistance to change in the title track and "The Way I Talk."
