Don't Let Stars Keep Us Tangled Up
I'm going to depart from my habit of doing Monday morning b-sides this week and post an a-side. Cortney Tidwell's debut album Don't Let Stars Keep Us Tangled Up is being released in the US tomorrow, and if you read my review of it earlier this month, you're probably already planning a trip to your local record store to pick it up, right? It's definitely the best new release I've heard so far this year, and that's a position I don't expect to change any time soon.
Cortney Tidwell - "Missing Link" (mp3)
And just to keep things marginally b-side related, here is a track from her equally excellent debut EP (not technically a b-side, but close enough).
Cortney Tidwell - "Fever Queen" (mp3) from Cortney Tidwell
For those in Nashville, Cortney is doing an instore performance at FYE on West End (the former Tower location) tomorrow at 5 pm. Her performance at Grimey's on Saturday was incredible, so it would definitely be worth your while to catch it. She'll also be doing a week of dates in April opening for Andrew Bird.
