Editor's Picks: Laura B. Whitmore's Favorite Acoustic Albums of 2013
Acoustic instruments have been taking center stage in all genres, and I say, good for us!
Jonatha Brooke – My Mother Has Four Noses
Ok, this isn’t technically an album release, but it’s such a compelling piece of work, it deserves its place on this list. Brooke, a fabulous singer/songwriter whose last studio release, The Works, featured lyrics by Woodie Guthrie, is one of my all time faves. My Mother Has Four Noses is a musical play that shares the story of Brooke’s challenges as her mother declined into the final stages of Alzheimer’s. She does so with grace, humor and true artistry. Brooke’s performed some scattered dates in 2013, but the show will officially open at the Duke Theater in New York City beginning February 20 with previews starting February 13. The soundtrack will be out soon, too, and you can preorder here.
Here’s an excerpt from the play, the song “Are You Getting This Down?”
