2 runners up will receive a copy of Pegi’s album, Foul Deeds
Pegi plays Bells House, Brooklyn, NY Wednesday Dec 15th
“Foul Deeds seemed like a good album title, because this record definitely has its share of dark themes… divorce, debauchery, disillusionment and despair,” Pegi Young says of her second album and first for Vapor Records. “But I’m not trying to be a bummer. I’m just trying to tell some stories and make music that I can get behind.”
“I don’t write happy songs, and the songs I’m attracted to tend to be kind of melancholy,” Young observes. “I don’t really know why that is, but that’s just how they come to me, and I have to let ‘em come on through.”
Pegi initially came to the public’s attention through her longstanding role as backup singer with Neil Young, her husband of three decades. But Foul Deeds—whose first 5000 copies will also include the bonus live DVD Love Like Water, directed by noted filmmaker Jonathan Demme at the Tower Theatre in Philadelphia—makes it clear that Pegi’s iconoclastic creative voice is very much her own. Her uncanny knack for cutting to the heart of thorny emotional issues drives such indelible originals as “Broken Vows,” “Starting Over,” “Who Knew” and the rueful title track. Another highlight is the dusky, lilting “Traveling,” which appears on the album in two versions, one spare and dreamy, and the other performed with a full band.
Foul Deeds, which Young co-produced, overflows with the same richly evocative songcraft that made her self-titled 2007 debut a revelation. That album exposed the late-blooming artist as both an affecting singer and a songwriter of rare eloquence and insight. The new disc finds Young continuing to make music of uncommon warmth and gravity, delivering her lyrics of heartbreak and hard-won wisdom in understated, quietly powerful musical settings whose hushed, haunted beauty underlines the material’s emotional immediacy. – Tickets Courtesy of Sneak Attack Media
