Instant Replay… 

Indie Musicology

It wasn’t that long ago that I was handed an album by Ruth Moody titled The Garden. I was so taken by the lyrical beauty and the clear, clean vocals that I became an instant fan. Much to my surprise, although it shouldn’t have been, I found that Moody recorded that album while on hiatus from her regular group, The Wailin’ Jennys, a group I knew of but had yet to hear. Well, the new Wailin’ Jennys is finally here and I am happy to report that Bright Morning Stars is as good as expected. Moody is joined by bandmates Nicky Mehta and Heather Masse and the three have come up with another (though I have yet to hear another) gem. Time to listen in retrospect (read: go back to the earlier albums) and in the meantime, I leave you with this— the official video of the making of the new album. I love this kind of stuff. Call it rockumentary or documentary or whatever you want, I seldom walk away from them without having gotten something good out of it.
