Tupelo Honey Playlist 12/4/12

I'm a month away from having to make my selections for the Best Americana CD's of 2012. As of last week I didn't have a clear favorite for the coveted top spot. It's been on my mind continuously and I think I've narrowed it down to about four discs. Well, that all went out the window last week when I gave a listen to a CD a listener brought by the station.

The CD is a debut release from the Portland based Twisted Whistle. It's a husband and wife duo fronting the band with a couple of excellent musician friends rounding out the line-up. This disc pushed every musical button I have. From songwriting, to genre jumping, to toe tapping rhythms, just an absolute joy to hear.

I'll be revealing my choice for Best of 2012 in a month, but I can tell you now that Twisted Whistle is the clear front runner for the top spot.

Till Next Week
