We love Julia’s music and wanted to make sure others could hear all the good stuff she’s got.
For a long time, Julia only had a flash site. She couldn’t update it, and the site stayed lonely and neglected. After working with Julia, we put together a new site, with a whole bunch of new features like:
- an online store
- a lyrics archive
- audio players
- video gallery
- photo galleries
- and even a blog!
This site was put together for The Defibulators’ music festival at SXSW, featuring over 10 bands. We put together a full event lineup, and photo gallery. We also included individual audio players so visitors could listen to the bands.
In the way they re-create the barroom swing of the Hank era, the Defibulators and their fellow indie-country bands present themselves as more authentic than, say, Taylor Swift. But while Corn Money has moments of unvarnished beauty (â€œYour Hearty Laughâ€), it also includes a degree of Hee Hawâ€“style cornpone (note long underwear). So what is their music: paean or put-on? â€œItâ€™s not ironic, what weâ€™re doing,â€ insists Bru. â€œWeâ€™re not making fun of [country music].â€ Jennings arches his brow. â€œOr are we?â€ Noting Bruâ€™s disapproval, he adds, â€œWeâ€™re not making fun of it. Weâ€™re having fun with it.â€ Sighing, Bru sums up the mystery that is their world: â€œItâ€™s kind of hard to describe to people.â€
