Highlight: Joe Purdy’s Who Will Be Next
Our favorite songwriter from this newborn decade is preparing the release of her sophomore LP, The Stand-In, coming up next 25th February on Names Records. I wish I lived in a world where Caitlin Rose would put out a new song every single day. Today’s one of those days worth living. Listen to the upbeat-yet-melancholic “No One To Call” above and watch out for the track listing of the new album below, which includes a Felice Brothers cover and a collaboration between her and The Jayhawks’ Gary Louis in two of the songs. Best album of 2013 and I even haven’t listened to it yet.
My favorite country girl just did this awesome version of “Piledriver Waltz”, a song that was written especially to your favorite movie of 2010, Submarine. Alex Turner thought of this mellow-simonandgarfunkelesque-polaroid ballad would fit perfectly into the movie, and I guess it did. But Caitlin just took it to another level. Taste it. Everything is better with a slide-guitar.
