Books Info:

It Still Moves free pdf 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. 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, Charley Patton to Wilco. Ultimately, "It Still Moves "is a fervent attempt to reconcile the American past with the American present, using only dusty records and highway maps as guides.
