Song of the Day - November 21, 2006

Oakley Hall released their second album Gypsum Strings this year. A psychedelic folk gem that blends elements of The Byrds, X, and Fairport Convention with a strong country twinge. Rachel Cox's vocals shimmer in tracks like "House Carpenter," which combines gentle folk elements with brutal guitar licks. I love it. However, try giving the heavily psych influenced "Confidence Man" a listen if you enjoy 60's psychedelica. My favorite track is the pounding "Lazy Susan," which bears a slight resemblance to X.
