I am TOTALLY in love with her album right now. I need to pick up the reissue, which has a reworked "Throw It All Away" and some bonus tracks, evidently. DAMN that child can SAAAAANG. She's playing the WXPN "All About The Music" Festival in July and I am so there.

Well, they're not really bonus tracks. They're reworked versions of "Throw it All Away," "Tragedy," and "What Can I Say," plus something else that I can't remember. Basically it's the same album, just with a couple of things redone. If you've been watching Grey's Anatomy, the new version of "Tragedy" was on there...its dominating feature is the addition of a cello part, which is very pretty. When I saw her, she had a cellist playing as part of her band, and he was solo with her for that song. It was lovely.

I was thrilled to pieces to hear all the new songs, and totally bushwhacked that she landed T Bone Burnett as a producer for the next album. Hot damn. What a total coup to get him - the man has worked with Bob Dylan and Joan Baez and Emmylou Harris and the Counting Crows...I can't *wait* - and by that I mean, I am literally bouncing in my seat - to hear the result of their partnership. I think she's gonna be the next big rockstar.

I agree, Elise, and I had the same reaction when I saw her earlier this year. That girl's got IT. Talent, star power, voice, good material - you name it.

I heard a song of her's on Sirius the other night and got the cd today. I loved her voice so much.

To my astonishment, after looking her up, I seen she is from freaking Ravensdale, Wa! That is where I spent most of my life, there is actually a corner nick named after my family. And everybody we know still lives there. Why this is shocking to me is Ravensdale is not a town, it is just a place in the woods, it literally is like the end of the earth. I never thought I would (unknowingly) buy a cd by someone from there. Small, small world.

But anyway, so far today I am enjoying the album a lot.

As promised, my review of last night's show. Cross-posted from the BCB.

Show. Was. Fucking. Awesome.

I took my dad, and he absolutely adored her, which makes me very, very happy.

Let's see, ahhh, sleepy, I got to meet Trish, and she was nice enough to take a pic of Brandi and I b/c I used up all my film taking pix.

I am just blown away at how charming and talented Brandi is. She was absolutely amazing!!!!!

Setlist-ish (not in order, y'all, I didn't write it down)
the times they are a changing
follow
tragedy
what can i say (very cute, everyone sang along)
someday never comes
again today
closer to you
throw it all away
happy
fall apart again
tragedy
cannonball (SO beautiful, damn!!)
my song
downpour
creep (AHHH!!! Loved this one - it's so funny/hot to hear her say "And I'm So FUCKING sick of this" - the angry lyrics are just really great for her)
the clock
late morning lullaby
folsom prison blues (AHHHH, she rocks this one out!!!!)
brand new song: "sweet josephine take me away" (very pretty!)
hallelujah

Tidbits: She recorded "Fall Apart Again" in Austin after SXSW. She recorded this show for T. Bone Burnett, who wanted to hear the band live, and she told me she leaks all of her live shows, so this one will probably turn up. YAY!!!!!!!

She's recording the album in November, but I guess y'all already knew that.

I guess this show for me can be summed up when I looked back at my dad who'd never heard of her beyond hearing the debut I burned for him - well, I looked back at him during "Folsom Prison Blues" and he looked so freaking happy. He was completely blown away. But, hey, Brandi has that effect on people!

*le sigh* I am still in Brandi heaven.

I saw Shawn Colvin's final show on the U.S. leg of her tour last night and I have to say how much I REALLY enjoyed Brandi Carlisle. One of the biggest highlights of the whole evening was when Shawn brought her out for Shawn's first encore to duet with her on Jane Siberry's Calling All Angels. (Shawn sang the K.D. Lang part.) As Shawn noted with a very broad grin: "I keep telling her, if she'd just work on her voice a little bit...."

She blew us all away in Philly last Sunday, as well. I have to say, I was equally excited to see Brandi as I was Shawn! :) I, too, was wowed by the "Calling All Angels" duet, and Shawn actually made a similar comment the night I saw them.

I put up a full review of the entire show on my MySpace blog. And also on my LJ (for those of you who don't have MySpace).

FYI. WXPN now has its own station archives (separate from the World Cafe archives) and if you scroll down to find it, you can hear a concert by Brandi Carlisle at http://www.xponentialmusic.org/intervie ... hives.php# (This is the only place I've been able to find her singing The Times They Are A Changing)

Brandi has "The Story" up on her Myspace page:

MUTHA I love that song!

It's also available for DL on i-Tunes - you have to kind of dig around to find it, but it's there.
