143 – Sunday 23 May 2010 : seeing in the dark

In audio, Listening on May 23, 2010 by Gabor Tagged: ,

I am really enjoying the album How I Learned To See In The Dark by Chris Pureka.

The album was sent to me by a PR company, and I will be playing a track on electrical language soon.

Essentially this is an album of acoustic songs by a female musician, fitting into the “americana” and “folk” categories (I hate the word “folk” – it sends all the wrong messages).  I suppose you could say that this is excellent singer-songwriter music from a tradition that includes Joni Mitchell and James Taylor, even though those are not the best comparisons.
