Sam Phillips – Lying

(click song title above to listen)

It was this week back in 2011 when Sam Phillips gifted us with a collection of songs from her stunning year-long subscription series The Long Play. Capping off a particularly fertile period of creativity to her fans, Solid State highlighted 13 of 42 songs she released over the course of five EPs and a full-length album.

This week’s tune is one of our faves of the collection, a stripped down version of “Lying” Sam originally recorded for her 1991 album, Cruel Inventions (and featured Elvis Costello on guitar!).

On Solid State “Phillips makes every word count…doling out images with precision. She sings about compromises, frailty, coping mechanisms, and tiny flaws that define a life. Phillips sounds like she’s rejuvenated – and never better.” – Greg Kot – Chicago Tribune.

Solid State: Songs from the Long Play – a “best of” from the Long Play sessions is currently available at samphillips.com

Sam Phillips – Cameras In The Sky

Sam Phillips graces our ears this week with the haunting track “Cameras In the Sky.” Part of Sam’s digital music and art installation on the web, The Long Play, “Cameras” is available to Long Play subscribers.

A floating feeling instantly takes over and space feels within reach, with an evocative piano as companion in this beautifully written track. “Cameras In The Sky” remains one of our favorites from Sam’s Long Play year. A stunner.

Sam is currently in the studio recording her next full-length record – her first ‘conventional’ retail release since 2008′s Don’t Do Anything. Look for it around Spring 2012!

Solid State: Songs from the Long Play – a “best of” of the year of digital music Sam wrote and recorded for her subscribers, is also now currently available to the non-Long Play subscribers. Order now at samphillips.com
