#271: Azita, “Glen Echo”

We haven’t heard of AZITA Youssefi for a while, until one day we get the news that the Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist has collaborated with Drag City labelmates Bill Callahan and Bonnie “Prince” Billy on a cover of “Blackness of the Night”. There, she played all the instruments and did all the arrangements, just like on her first album in nine years, “Glen Echo”, which also serves as a great introduction to her world of song. Enjoy it, and make sure you dig deeper into her discography later.
