3.16.10 - I'm in love with you Caroline...

Caroline Smith & The Goodnight Sleeps. I've never seen them live, but I love every song on their album 'Backyard Tent Sale'. I have a friend in Seattle who gave my name and e-mail to some guy at this booking agency. They contacted me and we tried to pin down a show here in Nashville. Alas, the stars didn't align and it all fell through. However, I bought the album and flipped. This girls voice is amazing! Such tender lyrics too. The instrumentation is subtle and perfect for showcasing the songs. It fits so nicely underneath her unique style. I really don't know what else to say except get ready to drop your jaw. You'll be asking... why are these guys not signed? Why do they only seem to tour the mid-west? Why can't I marry this girl? Ha ha. Just kidding. Sort of... Anyways, I don't want to get in trouble and I am an amateur at this whole blogging / giving credit thing so I'm just going to post the link to this awesome video that I do believe 'Hooves on the Turf' recorded outside one of their shows. They start out and end with a random cover of some Dr. Dre (yet another reason for my love professing) and do a bunch of their own songs in between. Perfect :)
