Saturday Lucky Dip
There is an argument that there is too much Americana posted on these pages. There is also a counter argument, and one I subscribe to, that you can never have enough Americana.
This week's random compilation Uncut: For Your Pleasure - New Music for a New Year 2011 contains a shed load of Americana as this track list demonstrates.
So that's what you are getting - not all of it just the two stand out tracks.
Firstly there is Samuel Beam better known by his stage name Iron and Wine with the sublime Walking Far From Home from his album Kiss Each Other Clean. He has five kids and a big beard.
Then we have the lovely Jessica Lea Mayfield from Kent, Ohio with Our Hearts Are Wrong from her second album Tell Me.
More random nonsense, Americana or otherwise, next Saturday God willing and if the creek don't rise.
