Padgett’s songs make their own world, and that world is not quite like any other.” -Brooklyn Rail. New 5 song EP finds Anna Padgett & bandmate Cynthia Nelson (RETSIN, RUBY FALLS, SOPHIE DRINKER) exploring timeless questions amid playfully blatant countrified melodies & a newfound confidence. Matt Sutton (Marlarkies, K), Karla Schickele (Ida, K., Beekeeper) & Miggy Littleton (Ida, K.) provide a musical posse that rounds out the normally spare duo w/pedal steel, violin, extra guitars & even bass. From the spiritual to the sublime, love, lust and loss comingle in this joyous celebration of the art of the well turned phrase, both musical & lyrical.
