Song of the Day, September 9: House Made From Cards by the Picketts

PickettsEuphoCardsToday’s song is House Made From Cards from the Pickett’s lovely second album Euphonium. The band’s distinctive Grange Rock sound blended traditional and alt country with rockabilly and punk. This track is the most traditional of the set, breathing new life into a longstanding lyrical trope. Christy McWilson delivers a magnificent vocal, building slowly as she aches through the tale of doomed love. The band show off their subtle side, backing her with quiet grace.

Enjoy this lovely song today.
