Rising Sign: Cold Specks



I found this artist on one of those free CDs you get with Uncut magazine (when I was wandering around London a few weeks ago). I love buying stacks of music mags when I’m on the road. Al Spx, just 24 years old and packed with talent. Check out her video. I got busy searching for more information about Ms. Spx, a pseudonym name apparently, because of her family’s request for privacy. And then I saw she was touring with Jim James, the monster of folk and leader of My Morning Jacket. And whammo, there they were passing through Seattle in May. Bliss. Got my ticket just in time (alas, the show is sold out). I’ll be there, camera in hand, at the temple that is the Neptune Theatre. In full worship mode. Music is good. Live music is gooder.
