EXCLUSIVE NEW DOWNLOAD: Fellow Citizens - Holden Caulfield Makes A Phone Call To Jane
Maybe it's the Cinco di Mayo hangover and I am feeling rather sorry for myself, but all I craved today was a steady dose of sun-flecked, finger-plucked, almost thumb-sucking alt-country jams, the kind made for camp fires, all-day stints in bed, and solemn think sessions on park benches. That said, I've been playing this serene, soothing concoction by Colorado-based Fellow Citizens on repeat. It has got a bit of the warm, reverb soaked guitar of My Morning Jacket, (The male lead even has a similar belted slur as Jim James,) a gossamery melody like Wilco, and a mountain wholesomeness like Blitzen Trapper. The soft female harmony tops off the song just right.
PS In case you are wondering about the title, remember Holden Caulfield is the lead from Catcher In The Rye and Jane was his innocence crush, whom he deliberates half the book about calling....ahh high school memories...
