Song of the Day

Raggedy Man

A lotta you know that I just love Haley Bonar and not just because we were both born in Brandon, Manitoba! The Minneapolis-based singer/songwriter with that honey-dipped sweet/sad voice has twice before graced the pages of the Song of the Day, but the news that she had self-released her new album, Golder, back in April, somehow evaded my radar. She funded the new record through a successful Kickstarter campaign and after hitting ‘repeat’ on the album all day, I can say the new stuff is jauntier, tighter, wonderfully melodic and a bit more upbeat than her earlier work. You can stream Golder on her website, and then pick up the album for only ten bucks over at BandCamp.

*UPDATE* I just found out Ms. Bonar will be playing The Bell House next Tuesday, June 21st….get your tickets in advance HERE, and then at The Mercury Lounge on Thursday. I gotta make room for this…
