Bonus MP3: Blackbird Harmony -- "Caution & Dispatch"
This week, we brought you a review of Blackbird Harmony’s second record, Hardwood Exits, a collection of dark country noir from local songwriter Evan Birdsong, recorded by Eleven Hundred Springs’ Steve Berg in Garland.
(Before you scoff, just remember: Red Headed Stranger was also recorded in Garland, which bests just about any album ever recorded in Dallas proper, save maybe the works of Robert Johnson.)
The record as a whole is a strong one, and the lonely shuffle of “Caution & Dispatch” is one of its highlights. Check it out...
Aided by the vocals of Bosque Brown’s Mara Lee Miller and the plaintive pedal steel of Eleven Hundred Springs’ Danny Crelin, the song is a bittersweet duet perfect for late, windy nights in North Texas. --Noah W. Bailey
