The track that I recommend this week is Kelly Willis’ “Sweet Sundown”, from her album Translated From Love. While Kelly Willis isn’t in the mainstream, I believe that the natural country timbre of her voice and intriguing songwriting matches and even surpasses many of the current crop of female artists that we’re hearing today. With its jaunty production, this fresh, bouncy song wherein Willis isn’t afraid to cut loose is just one of the many examples that help to prove my, admittedly, bold assertion.
So, what are your recommendations?
