Some music for the mid week

I have previously groused about the grim prospects for new music this year. After last year's Wilco, Arcade Fire, New Pornographers, etc., I was looking at new releases by Kathleen Edwards and, well, nothing else. When I heard that Tift Merritt had a new album, my reaction was "eh." We saw her twice in Austin--the first time, she was electric and captivating; the second time, boring. Her first album was ok, but then really didn't have any legs.

But I heard some good buzz about her new album, and have always thought her voice was one of the more unique and beautiful in the business. When it showed up on Emusic, I downloaded it and it has been in my playlists often of late.

I particularly like this song. Enjoy. And let's hope that Wednesday is better than Tuesday this week. :)
