Bloodshot Tuesday 5

"Melissa Swingle's voice—a knowing, laconic combination of drawl and warble—is one of the indie music scene's beguiling treasures." —Chicago Tribune

And she plays the guitar, harmonica, banjo, piano and the saw!

This week's Bloodshot offering is from the fantastically named Trailer Bride  from Chapel Hill , North Carolina fronted by the equally fantastically named Melissa Swingle and is from their 2001 album  "The High Seas" (BS081)

It was a toss up between Jesco and The Ghost of Mae West but Jesco won mainly because of it's cinematic qualities.
They have a pretty unique Southern Gothic feel to them. It has been a while since I listened to this but greatly enjoyed the listening research involved in this post
Trailer Bride were on the  go from 1993 to 2004 prior to Melissa setting up The Moaners with Laura King.
They are on Yep Roc so won't feature on Bloodshot Tuesday but may well pop up elsewhere at a later date.
