Big Harp – You Can’t Save Em All (download here!)
If you’re a fan of say The National or Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., you’ll love Big Harp. They’re all about fuzzy guitar, some back of the church ghost whispering and swaying vocals. If you’ve been following how alternative country/rock has evolved over the past couple years, I think you’ll immediately feel at home with this song. The rest of their stuff branches out into more country territory (beware, beware!) but keeps this dirty, bar hopping, traveling feeling that is so hauntingly Western.
I usually don’t care about a band’s personal story, but this one is actually kind of sweet. They met, fell in love, had some kids and made some music. What’s not to love about that? If you want to know more about the band or listen to their other stuffs, click here!
