Beautiful! Laura Veirs phones it in from Manhattan, NY while on tour away from Portland, OR. Phone trouble actually added some nice fuzz to complement the fitting Elizabeth Cotten cover- Laura's calling from a hotel, but it could be the porch outside your window.

"Veirs' songs qualify as poems: careful, word-conscious, narrative, neither foggy nor overwritten, and tend to give you a take on regular life experience that you don't quite expect."

Part one of a double-header with Cotton Candy.
