Chicago’s Speck Mountain have put out what I think is a sleeper classic this year through UK’s Piccadilly Records. This track, Girl Out West, is a meandering trek to the pacific, it speaks in much the same voice as Gillian Welch’s I Dream a Highway, or Edward Abbey in his most reflective moments. “In western waters, I’ll be born again,” great line. No US label yet, but it’s available through their myspace page. Listen to some more streaming while you are there.
