Enter the Newest Duo in Americana

With notes of country, jazz, and soul, Robbie Fulks and Linda Gail Lewis are taking the stage.

Album Review

Robbie Fulks and Linda Gail Lewis
Wild! Wild! Wild!
Bloodshot

He’s an Americana great who excels at both sly humor and thoughtful balladry. She’s the younger sister of original rock and roll hellraiser Jerry Lee Lewis, with a wild musical streak of her own. Put ’em together and the result is nonstop fun. Produced by Fulks, who also composes the majority of the tunes, Wild! Wild! Wild! is a sometimes raucous, sometimes tender and always gripping survey of enduring traditional styles. There’s boogie-woogie stompers (“Round Too Long”), honky-tonk laments (“I Just Lived a Country Song”), Dixieland jazz (“Memphis Never Falls from Style”) and deep soul (“Foolmaker”), all highlighted by her powerhouse piano and playful vocals from both parties. Move over, Johnny and June, George and Tammy: Robbie and Linda Gail are the latest classic duo!

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
