The Folk Anti-Hero

If you haven’t heard Taylor Swift’s latest radio hit Anti-Hero, you probably living successfully of the grid. If you have found yourself inundated with all things Taylor, album reviews, fat shaming criticism, and subsequent ticket sales snafus, you might have missed this country cover of Swift’s latest single. Recorded by Josiah and the Bonnevilles, it’s the rare song cover that elevates the original material. A mournful, stripped down acoustic version, it’s definitely going on my winter playlist.

The Marfa Tapes (sans UFOs)

When I think of Marfa, Texas, I think of the Marfa Lights, and all of the associated paranormal sightings. But it’s also where Miranda Lambert, Jack Ingram and Jon Randall recorded their collaborative album The Marfa Tapes. My favorite song off the album is Ghosts. I think Miranda Lambert’s vocals are gorgeous, and it’s the perfect song to listen to while I morn the final weeks of Fall.
