June 17, 2010

Been airing tunes from Elizabeth Cook's Welder for almost two months now. Started off with the refreshingly clever "El Camino," and have stopped down on at least four other tracks over the weeks. And everytime I play something, I am taken by surprise how much I am taken by Cook's voice, her writing and the clean, tasteful production of Don Was. That's the way a good album works, just sneaking up on me rather than returning to the disc in hopes it'll catch.

By the way, save next Thursday morning on your appointment book for one of the more promising debuts of the year: The Beauties' self-titled debut CD. Just need to find a track sans profanity ... We'll also dig further into The Second Best Colorado CD of the Year by Chris McGarry.
