Young Gun

Collin Herring hits somewhere between Merle Haggard and Husker Du--and that's a good place to be

"It wasn't really depression that fueled these songs," Herring says. "It was more like, 'What am I supposed to be doing right now? What kind of music should I be playing?'" He sits quietly for a few moments, mulling over his words. "Doing this album closed off a spiteful and angry period of my life." Lighting another cigarette, he adds, "This is the most in control I've been in a long time."

The Other Side of Kindness, however, is the sound of someone in need of control, someone used to the cruelties of life and love, someone well aware of the creative power of bitterness and longing. Collin Herring's nervous twitch might well be hiding something, his faint smile a cover for the emotions that heartfelt music necessarily demands.
