Uncle Tupelo made‚No Depression‚for just $3,500 (the studio‚√≥¬ªs house producers, Sean Slade and Paul Kolderie, lent Farrar the same 1961 Les Paul guitar J. Mascis jammed on‚Dinosaur Jr.‚√≥¬ªs‚Bug). The band released three more records before splitting‚‚acrimoniously‚‚in 1994. Farrar and Tweedy both went on to lead successful bands, and in the two decades since they parted, reimagining Americana has become its own cottage industry, a fury of wool vests and reconditioned banjos and oiled beards. Alt-country doesn‚√≥¬ªt mean much anymore because country doesn‚√≥¬ªt mean much anymore; genre feels like a relic of the record store era, back when hand-labeled plastic dividers still parsed sound into neat categories.

It‚√≥¬ªs challenging, then, to appreciate the boldness of‚No Depression, the extent to which the members of Uncle Tupelo insisted on interdependency, on an American story. We don‚√≥¬ªt have to do that anymore‚‚folks don‚√≥¬ªt self-identify in the same way, and hardly anyone loves just one genre monogamously‚‚but there‚√≥¬ªs still something furious and prideful here, something worth hearing. 8.4 Pitchfork
