“Grandma just took a ride in the mail truck/Now she’s dead dead dead/And she’s never coming back.” That’s a lyric from “Ashes in the Kitchen,” the song that welcomes you to BabySnakes’ “Summer Sounds” album, available free on Bandcamp and Soundcloud. Sounds depressing, but it isn’t. It’s beautiful.
It’s just a gal and her guitar, singing mostly original tunes–but including powerful covers of Karma Police (Radiohead) and the old classic, House of the Rising Sun.
This one has been on repeat for days. It’s awesome.
