Summary
"Part travelogue, part musical history, Amanda Petrusich's It Still Moves outlines the sounds of the new, weird America - honoring the rich traditions of gospel, blues, country, folk, and rock that feed it while simultaneously exploring the American character as personified by its songs and landscapes. What is Americana? Where does it come from? Through interviews, road stories, and rich music criticism, Petrusich traces the rise of Americana music from its early origins to its new and compelling incarnations - from Elvis to Iron and Wine, the Carter Family to Animal Collective, Johnny Cash to Will Oldham, Charley Patton to Wilco - and explores how the genre is adapting to the twenty-first century."--BOOK JACKET
