Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh vacation. Nothing like hiding in my (wo)man cave with some tunes and a mindless video game. (This week is Tiny Tower. What? I don't like killing things.)
Given the truly hellish week I've had (more on that in a separate, more ambitious post) nothing was more perfect to unwind with than Caitlin Bell's Blood and the Water.
What I most appreciate about Bell's music is that it has a traditionalist touch but it could appeal to many types of ears. She's choosy about her source material; she's not trying to resurrect any ghosts. And that's what makes Blood in the Water stand firmly on its own.
