Album of the Week: Tift Merritt - See You On The Moon

Full Disclosure: I haven't listened to this album at all. Since today marks the demise of Lala, my go-to source for previewing new music, I don't know how often I will get to actually preview a record before blogging it. I suppose I could fake it, which is exactly what I did when I reviewed albums in college, much to the chagrin of my music editor. (Who was a very smart guy and had an excellent ear for bullshit.)


Either way, here's what the press has to say. (Via Amazon):

"See You On The Moon is Tift Merritt's most visceral work to date. A deeply centered departure, these focused and creative musical short stories find Tift at the height of her powers. 'I wanted to make a really direct record. I wanted to take everything to a place that was less labored, of more depth. Open space, real strength. There was a certain feeling of inevitability about it. Like I found these songs whole.'"

Track List:
1. Mixtape
2. Engine To Turn
3. The Things That Everybody Does
4. Six More Days Of Rain
