Amy Millan shorn of stars

As a singer in the band stars (whose album Set yourself on fire I described to Beth the other day as sounding like the Field Mice making their own Screamadelica), Amy Millan provides a cool counterpoint, but on her own album Honey from the tombs she cuts a more lonesome-style country sillouette. Mandolins and some expensive sounding guitars along with cavernous drums, ambient noises buried in the mix and a funk homage near the end that nearly blew my speakers called wayward and parliament. At least an order of magnitude better than the Allison Moorer album I was going to tell you about.

Listen: Amy Millan - Skinny Boy

Listen:Amy Millan - Hard Hearted (ode to Thoreau)

Buy the album
