Rhett Miller – Most In The Summertime

rhettmillerRhett Miller’s on a roll. Last year’s release with his veteran Old 97’s group was one of the best in their 20+ year run. Now he resumes

which combine to accurately describe Miller’s solo approach. This time he enlists Portland six-piece multi-instrumentalists Black Prairie

expanding career belt. The basic performances were recorded live on the studio floor and later enhanced with overdubs from Peter Buck and

A full year in the making, she drove across the US twice and toured South Africa solo while writing, then spent 8 months in studios in Los Angeles, Nashville, Joshua Tree and Auckland, New Zealand, with producer Bradley Hanan Carter perfecting the songs and sound. It’s a collection of love songs — 12 in all — the most visceral record she’s made to date, guitars searing and drums thumping like anxious hearts...[READ MORE]
