Love this song. Sounds exactly like Michael Miller.  With the headfones on the harmonics are awesome. Its even nice to drum to. I've got heaps of Lucinda Williams stuff and he doesn't sound anything like her to me. I do know he often uses Lucinda's bassist David Sutton and drummer Butch Norton who are obviously top musicians.

Not my normal fare but for some reason I quite like it. Reminds me of the Swinging Steaks.

This is a dude guy singing? Not a guest gal vocalist? Sounds like any of a half dozen or more lady warblers. But this is less disconcerting than the Silversun Pickups lead. I saw him on on a video singing what I had previously only heard. Now when Silversun hits RP, I I hit PSD or mute. Sorry, Silversun, maybe that's a bit of gender discrimination. On the other hand, maybe the Silversun lead (what's his name?) is affecting that voice, in which case I'll hit PSD all the faster.   

 
For the first graders out there... Yes, it is a "dude guy" singing not a "lady warbler". 




This is quite lovely.
ohhhh the last few songs all seem to have slowly melted together into a mindless dirge.... quck get some energy back into things!
No comments for this fine song? Is it played on RP anymore? This guy's website is pretty thin on music though there is a live performance of the song on it. I bought this song off his website and lost it to a corrupt hard drive {#Sad} .

I like this song. Thank you for playing it.

ha, that's exactly what I was thinking...!

 
Lucinda?  i thought, cool, two Joan Osborne songs in less than an hour, when i looked up and saw it wasn't. 
lol - compared to James Mercer of the Shins or that guy form Turin Brakes he's a 2nd tenor.
But compared to The Delays this guy definitely sounds like a guy.  Check out Wonderlust...

So did I - or Sam Phillips.  Still, I really like it and now that I know it's a guy, I still like it.  Might have to shell out more (more?! Geez, I'm living like there's no tomorrow!) money for this one.

hokey smokes indeed.  i was just about to say "there's no way this is a dude singing."  we get enough of that trickery with the silversun pickups.

 


However, I like The Silversun Pickups, this, meh.

Seriously?  I can't count the number of times I have heard this, but until never looked it up. I am stunned that this is not Lucinda Williams. Hokey smokes!

Splendid! Ordered via the RP Amazon link. Don't you love it finding good music and the artist benefit by actually paying for their efforts.
 

hear hear people!

My reaction exactly, until I turned the volume up a bit.  I'll admit to enjoying this more than most of what Lucinda's been putting out the past few years. An 8, and I could be convinced that it's worth more than that.
