Music today came from one of my fave indie singer-songwriter/guitarists Mary Timony and two albums, Mountains (2000) and The Golden Dove (2002). If you don’t know who she is, I first heard about her from MTV’s 120 Minutes when she was in a band called Helium in the nineties. She had a brief tenure with Autoclave and Wild Flag with Carrie Brownstein from Sleater-Kinney and then some solo albums. Later she formed Ex Hex and there are other projects too. My favourite is The Golden Dove, her second solo album. It’s somehow progressive, somehow indie, and somehow 15th century and there’s something about her guitar playing. She has a degree in English literature from Boston University so she has evocative lyrics when she wants to. Read the In Deep Music Archive review from 2014 here:
It’s great – if you like this kind of thing.
