Arctic Death: A Salute to Winter Weather - Part Three

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Mon, Dec 15, 2008 at 12:18 PM

Brooklyn based singer Brittain Ashford makes spare, gorgeous folk songs, with a crystalline coldwater voice and various pluckings from autoharps and dulcimers. Here's a seasonally appropriate song from her Hinah session recorded in France back in March (you can hear more here); it's a song that doesn't appear on her fantastic, haunting record There, But for You, Go I—but I can't think of a better song to listen to as my circulation slows to a crawl and my extremeties become numb. She'll be in town next week playing a show with Shelly Short. Hopefully things will be warmer by then, but Ashford's nourishing voice is capable of generating its own heat.
