Steeped in the alt-country that rose to prominence with bands like Uncle Tupelo and The Jayhawks, we check out Faithless by Whiskeytown

Author & Special Guests

‚ÄćWith a new solo album about to be released, we decided to revisit where it all started for Ryan Adams with the 1995 debut release Faithless Street from his band Whiskeytown. Steeped in the alternative country that rose to prominence thanks to bands like Uncle Tupelo and The Jayhawks, there is plenty to like about a band forging its own path while still staying ground in traditional country rhythms and themes. Our discussion is occasionally derailed by Ryan Adams "the personality" as much as the singer and songwriter, and the end result is clashing viewpoints on this record. One of thought this was worthy album start to finish. Who didn't. Tune in to find out.

Does This album bring back some great vibes?
