Fitting like a glove in the lonesome music CD collection, the new album by the be good tanyas called hello love is a thing of beauty, the kind of hazy country-folk hybrid wherein words are mumbled and stretched like Van at the top of his game, and an assortment of lovely instruments are struck, plucked and strummed into willing submission. The first is the title track and second chosen because it reminded me to post some Opal here sometime soon.
Listen: the be good tanyas - hello love
Listen: the be good tanyas - opal
Bonus: the be good tanyas - human thing mp3 freely available from their US merch store.
