Southerners often have a complicated relationship with their home. Some rebel, move away and obscure their origins. They hide their accents, painstakingly remove “y’all” from their vocabularies, and bite their tongue when non-Southerners espouse ignorant generalizations. S.G. Goodman is not one of those people. The Hickman, Kentucky native proves one stereotype, though. She makes it clear that the South still produces some of our country’s greatest storytellers.
Goodman’s hometown is a part of our country many Americans, especially us city folk, have only seen from a distance through the lens of politicized media. Yet the stories told in her self-produced sophomore record, Teeth Marks, are a vital reminder that the rural South is a place where humans live, and like the rest of us, have lives that cannot be reduced to or understood in a blurb. – Ryan Wen
