Lissie’s persistant publicist (say that 3 times fast) recently pursued me to check out the artist’s new 5 song EP, which is being released on Fat Possum Records November 10th. After doing so, what I found was a mellow recording bringing to mind possibly something from Tift Merritt or Emmylou. I wasn’t instantly struck by most of the songs themselves, although I did like the vocals. But, when I got to “Everywhere I Go” I was hooked in. The Band of Horses production courtesy of Bill Reynolds was spot on, and again, Lissie’s vocals were tasty. I couldn’t exactly pinpoint what it was about it that I liked so much about the voice, but it made me want to strip down and get under a warm quilt on a cold night. But, that’s for another day…
I’d never heard of Lissie before receiving this EP in the mail, but then again, I never bought the soundtrack to The Simple Life or Wedding Daze either. But, something tells me I would have stumbled upon her soon since she’s working with the likes of Band of Horses and is currently touring with Ray LaMontagne. Cheers and good luck.
