Tupelo Honey Playlist 2/10/09

Well I have my first nominee for "song of the year:" It's Samantha Crain's "Devils in Boston." I remember reviewing her first album at about this time last year. I thought she was really close to being fantastic but the album was a bit too dark. She proved me right. Her new CD "Songs in the Night" is absolutely worth owning. I think she might very well be on her way to being a household name.

All kinds of other noteworthy new releases: Ben Kweller' "Changing Horses" is as americana as I've heard him. The Deep Vibration's "Veracruz" is that lovely mix of hard driving indie rock sprinkled with americana flavor. Mark Olson and Gary Louris' "Ready for the Flood" is, in my opinion, the best thing they've ever done together. Boris McCutcheon, The Stone Coyotes and Slimfit have already got my praise but are worth listening too and mentioning again. And, last but not least, The Tara Stonecipher Band... She doesn't have a CD out but you can see her playing around Eugene.

Scott ~

While it didn't have the immediate "wow!" impact of the EP, I share your love of Samantha Crain's first full length album. And while it took a couple of plays, the Olson and Louris release has grown on me as well. Heard North Twin yet? Got to tune in for about half the show ~ great stuff.
