Erin Rae Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
When you write descriptions for the benevolent overlords at Norman Records™, you end up hearing a lot of very loud music. Industrial techno, noise rock, doom metal, someone banging two model Eddie Stobart lorries together for an hour - pretty much anything that measures high on the decibel scale, Norman will have it. So it’s a nice change when you find yourself singing the praises of a pretty, quiet LP like Erin Rae’s Putting On Airs. These are twelve lovely country-rock lullabies for fans of Gillian Welch and Julie Byrne.
Jack White, via his Third Man Records, certainly enjoys creating unique situations and one-off combinations. This Luck Mansion Session documents the meeting of Erin Rae and Joshua Hedley, two superlative Nashville country singers, in a pop-up parlor room venue. A Guy Clark song and a Hank Williams song are the subject matter of the session. 7” on Third Man.
