File under: New to me. Denton, TX outfit The Baptist Generals released No Silver/No Gold on Sub Pop in 2003, but I didn’t catch wind of it until this May while visiting a friend in Atlanta. While definitely not an easy listen (this is far cry from the comfortable sounds of label mates Iron & Wine), those with an appreciation for very rough around the edges, lo-fi folk and roots music will immediately relate to the contents contained within. The atmosphere of the songs reside somewhere between an inebriated Isaac Brock field recording and a long lost Jeff Mangum bedroom cassette. No idea if the group is still intact, or if they even play out live anymore, as the website lists dates without a corresponding year.
