Adobe & Teardrops: Episode 138

Listen to the Amythyst Kiah episode of Country Queer Spotlight.

Album of the Week: Bette Smith -- The Good, The Bad, The Bette

 Bette Smith is a Bed-Stuy native -- and Southern soul seems to course through her veins. At least, that’s how it sounds on her debut album, produced by Drive By Truckers’ Matt Patton. Smith is gifted with a unique, almost carbonized singing voice, but that’s not the only part of her music that stands out. Smith is able to embody her songs in a way that will send little thrills up and down your spine -- assuming you aren’t transported along with her.
Note: This episode was recorded before the Breonna Taylor ruling, though Tyler’s song and album absolutely speaks for itself and is regrettably more relevant than ever. I linked to Tyler’s YouTube message in the show notes.
