Mare Wakefield | September 18
"Cozy brilliance ... Could she be the merger of Maria McKee, Natalie Merchant, Shawn Colvin and Dolly Parton? Wakefield and her guitar fill a musician's space as if an inherent extension of her soul. There is volume and symmetry that is as untainted as it is simple. This most elegant component is indeed a rare find and decrees strength and depth. Feel this music. It absorbs like thirsty skin."
Michelle Manker, Louisville Eccentric Observer, Louisville, KY
The Quick & Easy Boys | September 29
"Maybe Bootsy Collins wasn't listening to Farmer John when he said the Funkadelic bassman could sleep in his barn, because it appears Bootsy did have relations with John's daughter, and out popped Portland's The Quick & Easy Boys. Honky-tonk ain't never been this funky, and funk ain't never been this close to a cornfield. Riff-heavy and driven by a stoned-out beat wrested from the Mothership, The Quick & Easy Boys' sound is a one-of-a-kind cerebral treat. Maybe this is what it sounds like when Willie Nelson puffs extra purple herb."

The Winterlings | October 13
If you like The Weepies, then folky/rootsy duo The Winterlings just might be your cup of herbal tea. The timeless eleven songs on their new album The Animal Groom, including "Take Give," "Long May You Live," "Jennie Hodgers," "Flying Kites By Moonlight" and "Belize" serve to remind listeners of the power of two voices in an acoustic setting.
Gregg Shapiro, Baltimore Out Loud
