First Listen: Eilen Jewell – Rio Grande

SIG2076 SUNDOWN OVER GHOST TOWNResearch shows I’m a sucker for any album with “Sundown” in its title (See: Best of Lists). Thus, expectations are high for Sundown Over Ghost Town, singer/songwriter Eilen Jewell‘s recorded return.

Having taken a break last year thanks to motherhood and a move from Boston back to her native Idaho, Jewell gives us a first taste of Sundown Over Ghost Town via “Rio Grande.” A Tejano rhumba, “Rio Grande” paints a stark picture of the Texas desert in winter, showing nothing good can come from such desolation.

Sundown Over Ghost Town will be released on 26 May via Signature Sounds. Stream “Rio Grande” below.
