New Music at the Library
I see some really interesting things on the list of new music CDs at the library ("Adult Sound Recordings," this week--Nov 14--as this is written). For holiday items, get 'em while they're hot. A sleeper might be Over the Rhine's Snow Angels, featuring husband-and-wife Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist. The latter's vocals are positively gorgeous. I've seen online music sites that label this group as "rock," but it's more like piano-based folk. Another new CD worth checking out is the Shout Out Loud's Our Ill Wills (not a holiday CD). This is the second album from the Swedish power pop band that really knows how to create and arrange a song.
