Lissie | Why You Runnin’

I missed Lissie’s debut ep Why You Runnin’ when it came out on Fat Possum back in November ’09, but was turned on to it not long ago by the folks at Aquarium Drunkard. Lissie’s bio, posted on her Fat Possum page, describes her as a California farmhouse-livin’, wine-drinkin’ loner and the rustic folk of these tunes, sung in a voice that is both sweetly scented and scarred, like a Hot Toddy mixed with cheap whiskey or one of Neil Young’s infamous honey slides, reflects that lifestyle. Check it out…
