a hobo's song

I picked up Yearling by The Parson Red Heads on Saturday and proceeded to play it on loop for about three hours while we worked outside in the garden. A nice blend of The Byrds and Tom Petty, I strongly recommend getting the deluxe version, which wraps the EP Murmurations into the Yearling package. This is a band to keep an eye on.

I gave singer/songwriter Sera Cahoone a spin as well thanks to Jamie Field of the band Mermaid Kiss (more on them another time). The album is Deer Creek Canyon and it’s a wonderful album, full of acoustic guitar and pedal steel that pulls at your soul. This is also on the soon-to-purchase list. She has three albums out, it looks like, with this one from last year.

Lastly, there’s The Staves, with their album Dead & Born & Grown. A trio of sisters, they are everything that’s good about folk rock. Their three-part harmonies are simply wonderful.
