One of the highlights of this past weekend's ACL Festival was Caitlin Rose's set, at the seemingly impossible hour of 11:15am...Yea, thanks again whiskey! This Nashville based singer-songwriter is a GREAT talent and should be on the tip of your pierced West-Coast tongues! Her songs ache and swell, fueled by a heart-felt conviction and wisdom that belies her youth. She was joined on stage by the Mountain Goats John Darnielle, who is an unabashed fan, to sing "Shanghai Cigarettes" from her new record Own Side Now currently out only in Europe, with a US release pending. That song can be found on her MySpace page along with the song below, "New York", that I shot with my trusty FlipCam.
