Buck Again

Buck Again


Carbon Records CR144

"A needle in one arm and a bouquet in the other". This is Kelli Shay's first full-length album. The thirteen tracks here were recorded in 2005 in Chicago with Butchy Fuego of Pit er Pat. Buck Again is not unlike Kelli's live performances in its sparseness, but each song flows into the other with the addition of ambient sounds that weave through an instrumentation consisting of little more than guitar, autoharp, violin, and voice. [Each package is unique-- hand-painted in gold and silkscreened in Nashville, Tennessee at Isle of Printing.] "She sounds like Strawberry Shortcake is coming to get me".
