B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 6 OCT. 2012

Seattle-based singer-songwriter, Sera Cahoone, has just released one of this year's best singer-songwriter release, Deer Creek Canyon (Sub Pop) - with the exception to Sharon Van Etten's Tramp, released earlier this year. OK, it's damn good company. And it's that good. Cahoone, former drummer for Carissa's Weird, drew from her Colorado upbringing (hence, the title) and delivers unforced, crafted melodies with a strong delivery, a subtle accompaniment by her essential touring band and smartly produced by Thom Monahan (Pernice Brothers, Devandra Banhart). Simply, it's a solid album, beginning to end.
