Between breaking into Simon Reynold’s post-punk history Rip It Up and Start Again! and searching out new music in the mp3 blogs, it seems necessary to get the next project off the grounder sooner than anticipated. In the meantime, and short of WordPress’s ease of posting custom players, I post a little something mellow discovered this morning via I’m Just Sayin’ is All: Jentri Colello’s “Cannonballs.” It nearly sounds Natalie Merchant-esque or maybe more respectably, Chrissy Hyndes-esque with some Lindsey Buckingham fingerpicking.
Too referential? Give a listen to it if the mellow blues rock of the Wisconsin singer (actually, they’re a quartet) suits the day. The mp3 can be downloaded from the aforementioned blog.
