Twilight Laments for Lost Buckaroos
Her languid, dreamy, smooth-as-honeyed whiskey voice will take you on a pleasing journey through the un-make believe lands of sorrow, betrayal, and emotional devastation.
Backing Cowboy Sally on this album is an assortment of musicians that deliver the mood in spades. Anchored by the likes of Tom Ray (Devil in a Woodpile, Pine Valley Cosmonauts), John Herndon (Tortoise), and Jon Rauhouse (Neko Case, Grievous Angels), there’s also appearances by Jon Langford (Waco Brothers, Mekons), Robbie Fulks, Andrew Bird, Andon Davis (Riptones) Fred Armisen (yes, that Fred Armisen), Brett Sparks (Handsome Family) and Jane Baxter Miller.
There’s also songs by Jeff Tweedy ("When The Roses Bloom Again"), Jill Sobule ("Rock Me To Sleep"), , Robbie Fulks (the old-as-the-hills- sounding-folk "In Bristol Town One Bright Day"), Johnny Cash ("Cry, Cry, Cry") and The Handsome Family ("Snowbird" and the devastingly beautiful "The Sad Milkman").
So, our restless charges, lete Sally lead you up those wooden stairs and watch over you while you dream...or try to.
