Catskill faves Mikaela Davis & Southern Star announce their debut album for Kill Rock Stars, letting listeners into the fold with the gentle glide of “Far From You.” Davis has been playing with the band for some time now, honing their live sets with a mixture of Cosmic Americana originals and Dead covers. The pre-album single “Don’t Stop Now,” might be a better example of what they’ve been doing in the live sphere, but this captures the band’s approach to layered pop quite nicely. A soft yawn of steel rises up under Davis’ harp, and the song’s latter third stretches out with a hint at the itch to jam that’s threaded through their works. The new record is out August 4th from Kill Rock Stars.
