Elisa Randazzo "Bruises & Butterflies"

(Drag City) C'mon, anyone could make an ethereal, emotion-wrenching magic folk rock album if they had whatever filter Randazzo and Co. are singing and playing through that makes every note sound like it's being delivered from heaven by angel minstrels. And if they could write sublimely beautiful pain and mourning music as well as Ms. R. And they had the best album design in the history of Drag City. And they were totally awesome at making gorgeous, rich music that's unafraid to re-visit the 60s, while always sounding timeless. And they somehow knew how to sequence, pace, and add thrilling dynamics to a damn-near perfect album. Should be called Rad-dozza!
