Sera Cahoone

I have been really liking Deer Creek Canyon, the latest album from Sera Cahoone, who once played drums in Carissa's Wierd and now seems to be on Neko's tail as a modern, very empowered interpreter of country rock. She's got a wonderfully strong, unconflicted way of delivering a song, hardly any vibrato at all, big range, every note straight and emotionally honest, a voice that is strong and soft at the same time. She brought in Thom Monahan (Vetiver, Devendra, etc.) to produce and he surrounds her with characteristic warmth and clarity. Anyway, this is her third album, it seems to be getting hardly any ink at all, and that's a shame...

Here's the title track. And also "Naked".

I went to see her play with Grand Archives a couple of years ago and it was super fun. Read about it here, if you want.
