New album by Pieta Brown (daughter of the great Greg Bown)and features an array of top guests including Mark Knopfler, Calexico & Eric Heywood of Son Volt amoungst others. ‘Postcards’ follows 2014’s ‘Paradise Outlaw,’ which was recorded at Bon Iver’s April Base studio with help from Justin Vernon (who recently described ‘Paradise Outlaw’ as “probably my favorite record ever made at our studio”), Amos Lee, and Pieta’s father, Grammy-nominated folk-singer, Greg Brown. But where ‘Paradise Outlaw’ celebrated the sound of a group of a musicians recording live in a room together, ‘Postcards’ explores the role of distance and isolation in collaboration. Pieta recorded the basic guitar and vocals for the album, some with frequent collaborator Bo Ramsey (Lucinda Williams, Charlie Parr) in the mix, at a small garage studio near her home before mailing out each track to friends to complete and send back. “10 stories elevated by some uber-intutitive musicians in a dozen different places, all seamlessly woven together by the power, intensity, and soulfulness of Pieta’s vision. Hope you dig it as much as I do.” – Don Was “…equal parts tender, alluring, and utterly unforgettable.”
