Album Review: Cassie Morgan and the Lonely Pine, "Weathered Hands, Weary Eyes"

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

Local darlings Cassie Morgan and Beth Bombara spread their wings with this warm, airy full-length. Sweet vocal harmonies are enveloped by simple strums and a menagerie of bells, toy pianos, glocks, and whistling. Voted best singer-songwriter by the RFT in 2009, Cassie plays pure and simple folk songs in a way that makes you smile while it breaks your heart.

The album also features beautiful cover design by KWUR dj Joanie Walbert!

Play: 4++ upbeat, 1++ slow and sweet, 6+ bluesy and sexy, 9+ slow, thunderous, 2++ nice and pretty, 7+
