Rose covers Artic Monkeys for Record Store Day
Monday, April 16, 2012
– In honor of Record Store Day on April 21, Domino Records commissioned two very Arctic Monkeys covers from Caitlin Rose, the young indie artist from Nashville.
Rose recorded Alex Turner's Piledriver Waltz and Love is a Laserquest. The former first appeared in the British film "Submarine" as a bittersweet acoustic love song, and then later as a fleshed out Arctic Monkeys song from their most recent album "Suck It and See." Rose converted the song into a country rock ballad complete with slide guitar. Love is a Laserquest was done as a heartbreaking country song. Both songs will be pressed on a limited edition 7 inch for Record Store Day only.
Rose is currently in the studio recording the followup to her critically acclaimed debut, "Own Side Now."

Own Side Now
Much like the flower of her last name, Caitlin Rose walks a strange line between thorny and precious. "Own Side Now," the first full-length album by the 23-year-old Nashvillian, can be unapologetic in appropriate country music fashion: She croons about her chain-smoking habits on Shanghai Cigarettes and "angry broken heart" on Sinful Wishing Well. Other times, such as on the title track and For the Rabbits, her voice comes off eerily similar another befringed-brunette: indie »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Concert Review: Turner bring it on (to his second) home
Frank Turner opined during the first of four sold-out nights of the Lost Evenings Festival that Boston was his home away from his British home. The likable, accessible singer hit the sweet spot not only with his perspective, but his performance as well demonstrated why.
Turner made a major change in this year's festival. For the first time, he... »»»
