Mixtape Monday: Alt-Country

Neko Case, the Queen of Alt-Country

My southern roots don't go as far as sweet tea and country music, I'm a little too left-of-center for it, but I do love me some alternative country. It's got all the twang and strums as a typical country song, but is more experimental when it comes to lyrics and voice types. Get out your Moonshine for a Neko Cake Cocktail and make a give this genre a listen, you won't be dissatisfied. 

1. Broken Yolk in Western Sky - Benjamin Gibbard (The Death Cab frontman puts on his finest cowboy hat.)
2. I Was Cruel - Caitlin Rose
3. She Lit A Fire - Lord Huron
4. Goodnight Rose - Ryan Adams (He is probably the grandfather of this genre, being one of the first to pin this genre.)
5. Change is Hard - She & Him
6. One Woman Army - Kate Earl
7. Little Lovin' - Lissie
8. 20 Miles - Deer Tick
9. The Needle Has Landed - Neko Case
10. The One That Got Away - The Civil Wars (This is off their latest sophomore album, which is so so good...)
11. Something Pretty - Patrick Park
