Kassi Valazza – “Smile”
One more for the country crowd today. The new album from Kassi Valazza is a worn and wearied collection of country that embraces the troubador’s path. With an air of Emmy Lou and touch Flying Burritos’ softness, Valazza embraces the dust of the American West. Though, her vocals can oftentimes fly far from the dryness of the dessert, letting a lilt of ‘60s folk seep through with nods to Karen Dalton, Sandy Denny, or Kathy Smith. The new single, “Smile” leans on the twang more than the fogged lantern lilt, finding Kassi as comfortable as any among the laments and lonesomeness of a bruised country croon. The new album, Kassi Valazza Knows Nothing, is out May 12th from Fluff and Gravy.
