Another Country

Tift Merritt’s third album, Another Country, drops today. Considering how much I liked hearing her new songs at her solo acoustic performances recently (reviews here and here) I’m impressed how much I like the full band versions. There’s a little less emphasis on her voices, but overall the band helps to set the mood without being too intrusive. “Another Country” works well with a harmony part while “Morning is My Destination” and “Keep You Happy” are evocative of the wonderful arrangements on Bramble Rose.

  1. Newsweek featured this album in it’s “Read,” “See,” “Listen,” etc. blurbs this week. I felt informed for knowing about it before then.

  2. I clicked sumbit right as I saw that I misspelled “its” as “it’s” above, and shouted “nooooo!” (well, whispered loudly, babies are sleeping).
