Tift Merritt – Engine to Turn

Released in 2010, Tift Merritt‘s second album for Fantasy Records and first with producer, Tucker Martine, was the brilliant See You on the Moon. (Click song title above to play).

One of our favorite albums, her work is described as a spare and intimate-sounding set, the backing musicians are uniformly great (including harmonies from Jim James of My Morning Jacket) and the songs perfectly framed by producer Martine.

“shadings color the tunes, and with a subtle catch in her voice or a bend in her pitch, she can break your heart and mend it again moments later”. – Mark Deming, All Music Guide

“moments of eye-opening wonder” – Boston Globe

Tift has “the lyrical goods to deliver intimately pleasurable, deeply felt folk-pop” - Pitchfork

If you missed her summer tour with Andrew Bird as a member of Hands of Glory, you can catch her this week in majestic Marfa, Texas as part of the 8th Annual Trans-Pecos Festival of Music & Love along with artists like Gaby Moreno, Old 97′s, Heartless Bastards, Deer Tick, and Ben Kweller.
