Tara Angell’s debut took two and a half years to be released. Last week Ryko took a chance on this upcoming artist and released her debut Come Down. Produced by Joseph Arthur, this release is more atmosopheric than most Americana records or most records period. They may have to come up with a new genre for this one – I’m pushing for gothic country.
Recorded in five days this flawed gem of a record comes with warts and all. But the confessional songs and Tara’s whispered vocals hold it all together. Here’s 2 songs from this auspicious debut as well as a couple outtakes and rare b sides. Order it here.

You Can’t Say No To Hell
Outtakes, b-sides and covers
These songs, stripped of some of the Joseph Arthur production, and left off her debut are sometimes even more powerfull than those on the disc. Taken together as bookends Ana Egge and Tara Angell are the new female face of Americana music.
