Where You Stop For A Minute [mp3] (from the new Rio Ranger EP!)
Home Is Where [mp3]…same song, from Cotton Jones’ Live Luxury Wafers Session
Here comes the last of a clever little 3-part series of hardcover, handcrafted, limited edition CD books released by Cotton Jones: the Rio Ranger EP (Quite Scientific, 9/8/09). 5 new songs – Only Minutes Young, Nicotine Canaries, Don’t Got A Lotta Time, Always Feeling Good, and Where You Stop For A Minute (above). Included in the book are the things you’d expect to find in a book: artwork and writing.
From old-school folk to psychedelic, demon-slaying-influenced, reverberating waves-in-a-puddle, new-old-school folk, Portland-based Michael Nau and Whitney McGraw seem incapable of misstep, no matter what effects they employ (or eschew) for enhancing their tunes.
