This week’s Top Tune is a sweet & soulful track from Tift Merritt‘s 2010 album, See You On The Moon on Fantasy Records. We love this song. That’s Jim James from My Morning Jacket on harmony vocals. Speaking of harmony, Tift has teamed up with the great Andrew Bird on many occasions during her incredibly busy and fruitful year. Always a thing of beauty, you can hear them here or live and in person coming up on Andrew’s Gezelligheid Winter 2013 tour (dates below) as well as this coming Friday in-store at Rough Trade, Brooklyn NY.
Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, R.E.M., Neko Case, Spoon) produced ‘Moon’ as well as this past year’s critically acclaimed Merritt gem, Traveling Alone. The deluxe edition on Yep Roc Records could make the perfect gift this Holiday Season, we’re just saying. Hope to see you at one of these shows, you won’t regret it!
