Album of the Day
Singer-songwriter Robin Holcomb emerged from New York in the late 1980s with a striking style connecting spare folk to avant-jazz and all points in-between. Her second album for Elektra, ROCKABYE, is among her most accessible, with Holcomb's earthy voice spinning tales of human struggle and natural wonders across ten originals. Friends including guitarists Peter Holsapple and Bill Frisell provide instrumental support without ever upstaging Robin's distinctive piano work. ROCKABYE celebrates its 25th anniversary today, and if you have any desire to explore the more experimental edge of Americana, don't let another year go by without it.
