We're starting up a new section this month called "Digital Top Ten" to account for releases we only get digital files for. While we still continue to prioritize physical media & the upkeep of our truly one-of-a-kind music library, I wanted to make some space for all the great music that's coming out and only available online or in super small batches. Hope you check it out!

Singer, songwriter, and musician Tyler Keith has been whipping up a roots-tinged garage-punk frenzy for decades in bands such as the Neckbones, the Preacher's Kids, the Apostles, and Teardrop City. Earlier this year, Keith released his first book, The Mark of Cain. He dropped by Burn It Down! to discuss crime novels, the prison-industrial complex, the prosperity gospel, Harry Crews, the state of book publishing, and more. Tune in as Burn It Down! goes highbrow...just a little.

We'll cover the first six albums, stray singles, BBC recordings and rarities. Join us!
