Anti’s Winter EP includes the legendary Bettye LaVette, Petra Haden’s great version of the Psycho theme, and a Shane McGowan/Johnny Depp sea shanty, of course!
Ato Records Spring Sampler includes several Muruch favorites: Old Crowe Medicine Show! Alabama Shakes! Brandi Carlile & Emmylou Harris singing “Take Me Home, Country Roads”!
Ben Sollee, Ron Sexsmith, Damien Jurado and Harper Simon are among the artists featured on this American Songwriter Sessions Sampler. I hadn’t heard of Harper Simon – his “Berkeley Girl” is a gorgeous song from another time.
We in the Muruch household were very excited to hear Sarah Simmon cover Brandi Carlile‘s “The Story” on NBC’s The Voice last night. It’s our favorite Brandi Carlile song and really should be the next “Hallelujah” cool song everyone loves to cover (hear that, Allison Crowe?!). Sarah didn’t quite capture the chill-producing emotion of Carlile’s extraordinary original, but it’s a formidable song for any singer to tackle.
To celebrate the release of her new album, Bear Creek (click title for our review), Brandi Carlile is giving away a free, legal download of her Live at Bear Creek companion EP. You can access the mp3s by entering your email address into the NoiseTrade widget below.
