heard "long lonely road" on the radio last night, i was impressed, this feels true which is unfortunate-->

there is definitely something a little Paste/dadrock/oldmanhat about the way she is being packaged and marketed,

three years pass...

Gilles peterson played some of her new album. Made me think I should've investigated her music year ago.

six months pass...

another killer show tonight in Eugene, the 2nd time this year I've seen her rock the fuck out to a sold out venue.

I think the reason she gets radio silence on ILM is because it's too "authentic" and/or "rootsy" or what the fuck ever, there's maybe some chatter on the rolling country thread but imho that pigeonhole does a disservice to an artist who covers Mazzy Star and frequently plays loud electric guitar in a 5-piece band

Under Cover out Aug. 26, covers range from Joe South to Frank Ocean to Gillian Welch to Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds (for instance), couple of advance tracks here:
