HWA: Rolling Stone Preview

Todd Snider Salutes Hard Working Americans in New Band


For his latest project, Todd Snider was encouraged to start spending time with musicians his own age. "One day Chad Staehly pointed out to me that I spend a lot of time with my heroes and avoid my peers," Snider tells Rolling Stone. "He was like, 'I always see you with Jerry Jeff, or John Prine, or Kris Kristofferson. Who do you like that's your age?'"

In February of 2013, the Barnes Brothers attempted to shoot a documentary about the lives of Todd Snider, Elizabeth Cook and other touring songwriters residing in the burgeoning East Nashville neighborhood.

They failed.

Instead, drugs and booze took over.

East Nashville Tonight.

His are the first songs I learned." See full track list below.

Produced by Don Was (Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones), the 14 celebratory tracks feature friends and admirers like Kix Brooks of Brooks and Dunn, Elizabeth Cook, and Amy LaVere.

In Between Jobs

From the A/V Club:

Exclusive stream: Todd Snider unveils recession ode "In Between Jobs" from new album


As we reported last month, singer-songwriter-wiseass-national treasure Todd Snider will release a new album, Agnostic Hymns And Stoner Fables, March 6. In the meantime, we're pleased to stream the sloppy, welfare-funded skronk-blues of "In Between Jobs," which spotlights the album's funny-sad, Desire-and-sixpack-of-Old Milwaukee vibe. (That's a lot of hyphens, but Agnostic Hymns really is a multi-faceted record.) At any rate, here's "In Between Jobs."

Flagstaff Live

East Nashville Instigator
For fans of singer-songwriter Todd Snider, anytime he churns out a new album is a cause for extreme jubilation. Since his 1994 debut album Songs for the Daily Planet, and before, Snider has been slowly and methodically collecting a devoted fanbase that hangs on his every word...

Adventures in Folk Singing
The last time singer-songwriter Todd Snider played Flagstaff was in November of 2004. As far as I can tell, it’s the only time—aside from his show here this Friday—that he’s played here...

INTRODUCING THE "CLASSICAL FUNK" STYLINGS OF TODD SNIDER
ANOTHER SMASH BATCH OF MUSIC ON I HEARD THEM RECORDS.
COMING SOON TO A POOL HALL NEAR YOU.

it was many years ago behind a pool hall called curlys in memphis
where an early version of the nervous wrecks were rehearsing
under the watchful eye of our mentor mark "hoot" marchetti

the pool hall was empty save the day janitor
who seemed to be a local street drinker
that curly, the pool halls owner, had given an odd job too
he listened to our music for a minute, scratched his head, smiled and said
"yall got that classical funk sound"
he then went on to say that he was a scout for "i heard them records"

man those were the days.
so full of promise and humor.
sometimes i wish we'd have signed with "i heard them records"
instead of MCA...
you know, just to see what would have happened.
but alas, the past is unchangeable
and so we forge on
night after night, song after song...READ MORE

Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables

On March 6, East Nashville's subversive, fearless, rebel-rousing songwriter Todd Snider will release his new studio album 'Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables' (Aimless Records). Last year's double-disc live album 'The Storyteller' earned accolades from Rolling Stone and NPR and his new set finds him pushing even more of society's buttons. "I want to inspire people," Snider says. "I want to inspire them to leave home, to do things traditionally considered wrong. If you listen to my record and vandalize your school, godspeed.”

Recording the album in under a week, Snider and co-producer Eric McConnell recruited other great East Nashville musicians to create a sound that didn't replicate anything they'd done together previously. "I told them I wanted to make a mess," Snider says. The result stands as something disconcerting, cracked and apart from the music of Snider's heroes, and from Snider's own celebrated past.

On 'Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables,' Snider paints a world where begging turns to mugging, where investment turns to ruin, where babies grow into felons, where honesty is blunt trauma. Highlights include "New York Banker," a ballad about the warped karma of the financial crisis (chorus: "Good things happen to bad people"), a love song called "Brenda" about an unexpected musical couple, and the album's lone cover, of Jimmy Buffett's "West Nashville Grand Ballroom Gown.”

Full track Listing:
1. In the Beginning
2. New York Banker
3. West Nashville Grand Ballroom Gown
4. Precious Little Miracles
5. The Very Last Time
6. In Between Jobs
7. Brenda
8. Too Soon To Tell
9. Digger Dave's Crazy Woman Blues
10. Big Finish
