When reading about the music industry of late, the challenging economy and flagging album sales have made the headlines. But, if you care to look, there are success stories too. Not accepting the industry’s “no” for an answer, fans helped to fund Over the Rhine’s new LP The Long Surrender. It sees release today. Produced by Joe Henry, it shows the Ohioans’ blend of Americana alt-folk and winsome alt-pop hooks to best advantage.
Spinner is sharing a stream of the album this week.
