Carson McHone “Drugs” – Listen

Ray Wylie Hubbard says of Carson McHone that she “writes songs like her life depends on it.” There’s no soft edges on this new song from Carson McHone, from the start there’s a destructive dependency  – “If I said you tasted sweet would you let me use you terribly, so terribly sweet, oh let me feed, oh feed each other.” But, as it gets darker you just can’t stop listening.  This song, by the by, is from McHone’s new album ‘Carousel‘, which is a hell of a listen.  Carson McHone will be at the Americana Music Association UK showcase on January 29th, at Oslo.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
