DAR WILLIAMS

Promised Land

2008-08-02

The new release from Dar Williams give us more of her jangly guitars and stories about relationships and leaving a positive footprint on this earth (both environmentally and emotionally). Most of this is from her pen, with interesting exceptions "Troubled Times" (from the band Fountains of Wayne) and "Midnight Radio" (from the soundtrack of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch"). Her upbeat songs are impossible to get out of your head, like "It's Alright" (with Marshall Crenshaw on guitar), "The Easy Way," and "Go to the Woods" (with Suzanne Vega). "Buzzer" is about a Yale University '60s psychological experiment. 08/08 MJVD F-Contemporary
