Ridiculously Retro

OK, I’m going to cross my fingers and hope this works. The Believer‘s new music issue is a serious experiment in the limits of retro. How serious, you might wonder. So retro that the music comes to us by way of a cassette tape. Fortunately, my silver Subaru sedan must be the last vehicle in the developed world that still has a tape player. One song in particular stuck out, which I will now attempt to use to play you out for the week, dear reader. Here is the band Great White Jenkins covering the Carter Family number “Where Shall I Be.”

Goliath doesn’t stand a chance
Wah Wah Wah Economy
Mountain Goats Are Back!
