Samantha Crain - For The Miner


Do you like Singer/Songwriters/Alt-Country/Americana or Indie-Folk, or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!

Samantha Crain - For The Miner (2014)
I find this track so infectious at the moment.  For some reason I keep on thinking of U2's One, it's probably the vocal melody, I haven't tried it out, but maybe there's some chords that lead to Bono's boys.

For The Miner features on Samantha Crain's 2013 debut album Kid Face which was produced by The Mountain Goats, John Vanderslice.  An Oklahoman of Choctaw heritage she often gets mistaken for a 16 year old, hence the title of her first album. With influences include Neil Young to Woody Guthrie to the Flaming Lips she's an artist that has got me all excited.

You can download a free version of For The Miner, from her website here
