I don't want to hear it
As fans of our show know so well, Nashville’s Belmont University has an impressive track record of fostering musical relationships, even ones made off campus.
And thus it was that Margo Price and Jeremy Ivey, “crashing” a Belmont neighborhood party, met one another and began a life together. The now-married couple has tried a variety of musical endeavors, together and apart, with shuffling people names and styles. But something settled when the idea of Buffalo Clover took root. With a nice buzz and a Kickstarter cruising into its final days, this exciting band visit the Loveless Barn this week, for an opening slot that will sound utterly perfect on Hippie Radio.
And after that, almost everything’s going to be coming up Clover, in that two of the three other bands set for Wednesday are friends and colleagues of the Buffalo gang. And I’ll tell you about them in a second. But there’s also a gentleman visiting from another planet altogether who merits more than a passing mention.
Rose tosses off a pun in “When I’m Gone,” as she sings, “Lyin’ / I’ve been lyin’ / I’ve been lyin’ around with the dogs in this town too long.” She’s preparing to beat a hasty retreat, yet the force of the music belies the image of Rose as a quitter or an escapee. Like another apparent influence here — the Everly Brothers’ sound pops up in some of her layered, multi-tracked harmonies — Rose knows that it takes a strong, assured performer to sell the notion of vulnerability over the long haul. Keeping yourself open to the hurt is what her music is all about.
PS - this song will also be used in tomorrow night’s season finale of Hart of Dixie on the CW.
So… we recently put out a Kickstarter project to help fund our upcoming record, TEST YOUR LOVE. We opted out of resigning our record contract after a year so we were in debt to our old label by three thousand dollars before we even started the recording process.
I know what you’re thinking, “Why even put out a record if you’re in debt? Why not just quit playing music and move to India to study transcendental meditation? Why not start a farm somewhere in West Virginia and raise goats?” Well, believe me, all that is still on the table. That’s where our fans come in. Please share our video, and pre-order the album at the link below. We appreciate your love and support!
You been cast out, honey it ain’t that bad/ Sit down beside me and get it off your chest
You’ve been beat up, robbed of what you had/ I can’t stand to see you so down and depressed
Old Jedediah is stumbling on his words/ It seems he only borrows what he can’t give back
For what’s not lost, his search is undeserved/ But he’s just like you as a matter of fact
You go to many places, you wear so many faces
So tell me now honey, which one is you?
There’s floodin’ in the alley, thievin’ in the alley
Won’t you tell me now brother, what are you gonna do?
When you wake up and find it’s not around/ Don’t act confused like you had it there before
You’ve been cast out, but I didn’t let you down/ You never did have too much report
All your tribulations are causin you vexation
Don’t they say wisdom comes from sorrow and grief?
All of the seasons of the trial and the treason
Why can’t you see, it’s just you and me?
It’s just you and me
