Frazey Ford just released her debut album Obadiah, but she’s been on the scene for years as one-third of the Be Good Tanyas (shout out to Cover Lay Down for introducing me to those cover-happy Canucks). That band is now in “indefinite hiatus” – read: broken up until they get bored – but Ford’s solo work keeps the quirk-folk strong.
For the album she covered Bob Dylan’s “One More Cup of Coffee.” Her trademark warble fits the gypsy melody perfectly, making us wonder what she could do with the rest of Desire. “Romance in Durango”? “Isis”? Maybe stay away from “Hurricane” though.
