SERA CAHOONE

Yet another refugee from the Pacific Northwest cult band Carissa’s Wierd (sic), the Denver-born Cahoone recorded her debut whilst also playing drums in an early version of Band of Horses. Her country-flecked folk was strong enough to get her signed to Sub Pop, and her label debut, 2008’s Only As the Day Is Long, easily bests a lot of the milquetoast (see The Head and the Heart, Father Misty) signed by the Seattle label in the interim. Cahoone once said she wanted to be the “musical love child of Buck Owens and Cat Power,” though she sounds like neither — which is a good thing since the first would just be weird and the latter derivative. But she does sound great, again, on last year’s Deer Creek Canyon, another solid effort filled with shuffling tales of love gone sour, sad bastard(ette) ballads, the occasional up-tempo foray for contrast, and Jason Kardong’s sensational pedal steel lines. Cahoone’s an underrated songwriter and singer who deserves a seat next to the Van Ettens and Mayfields of this generation. (John Schacht)
