Maybel – “Can’t Abandon My Love”


This lovely Canadian country-folk album snuck out early in 2020 as a digital only release on Vain Mina, but I missed its charms until just now. Today the excellent label Idée Fixe announces that they’re going to reissue the album and give it an LP pressing. Its a sort of beautiful and pure recording that’s part Carter Sisters, part Mountain Man oscillating between stripped back folk and velvety arrangements that lacquer on some pedal steel and glowing keys. Its hard to whittle down a favorite among the bunch, but the plaintive, sunset strums of “Can’t Abandon My Love” give a good idea of when their ache and grace line up in perfect harmony, tugging at the heart like a nagging memory that refuses to fade. The LP pressing will be out from their new label on April 10th, but not day better than a Bandcamp Friday to get in line for it.
