New Patty Griffin
In my opinion, Patty Griffin's debut album was the most powerful folk album to come out in the modern folk era. It's an album composed almost entirely of simple chords on a lone guitar and Patty's unparallaled voice. Even though it's a concept that should have run its course by 1970, it sounds downright revolutionary.
So I was really excited to hear a track from her upcoming release this morning on Acoustic Sunrise. Judging by the song I heard, the new album (called Children Running Through, available Feb. 6) is less spare but no less powerful. Listen to the new track, "Heavenly Day," at Griffin's MySpace page.
