HWA: Rolling Stone PreviewTodd 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 Between JobsFrom 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."

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.”
