I feel slightly terrible that Valerie June used to live in Memphis and I never took the time to listen to her stuff until she moved away and became nationally recognized. Whoops. I remember seeing her wild hair as she performed at the Farmer's Market downtown, but not taking the time to stop and actually listen instead of thinking about which vendor to buy my veggies from.
Listed on several Best Albums of 2013 lists I finally listened to Valerie June's new album Pushin' Against the Stone. It's delicate and twangy at the same time. Slightly bluesy and old timey.
Favorite Track: Somebody to Love (acoustic version)
When to listen to it: with a glass of wine while flipping through your favorite magazine
