This one is damn fine, a sampler of songs from South Carolina’s Shovels and Rope. If you recognize the lady singing, that’s Cary Ann Hearst, who you may know from the Hayes Carll song “Another Like You” off his latest KMAG YOYO.
Shovels and Rope are putting out some of my favorite music right now, just listen to this sampler to see why. Great songwriting, songcrafting, and some mighty fine singing and musicianship too. I really urge you at least stream it.
If you like what you hear, Shovels and Rope have a new album out called O’ Be Joyful, which is available here.
