10 Essential Alt-Country Albums
Freakwater, Old Paint (1995) Death looms over every song on this Louisville outfit’s fourth album. On “Smoking Daddy,” a man commits the slowest, most painful suicide imaginable. On “Gone to Stay,” a grieving mother hears her dead infant crying in her grave. Even the chatty narrator of “The Waitress Song” understands she’s wasting her life pouring coffee. Old Paint might be too much of a downer, then, if it weren’t for the graceful harmonies of Janet Beveridge Bean and Catherine Irwin, two of the most underrated vocalists of the alt-country movement. They add enough life to the songs to counter all the tragedies they sing about.

The Moment: The expression “old friends” has special resonance here, since that’s the title of one of Guy Clark’s greatest songs.

This is the first in a new series of intimate images captured at Roots by staff photographer Scarlati and annotated by journalist Craig H
