Man…times sure flies, huh? Hard to believe it’s been two years since I last served up a Dawn Landes song on The List, but it was February of 2008 when ‘Bodyguard’ got added to my iTunes folder…..

Anyway…yesterday I stumbled across her new album and I’m happy to say that time hasn’t changed her style…on ‘Young Girl’, the signature snare drum is still there, and the bare-bones production is reduced to the essential elements, with a stripped-down, almost carnival-like feel to the music, and Dawn’s sultry, deadpan vocal stays in a monotone throughout the song, until she breaks free with a wail at the very end. Sweetheart Rodeo came out a couple of weeks ago, and you can visit Dawn on MySpace
