Rachel Baiman's Thanksgiving EP is currently being featured in Garden & Gun's "New Albums for November!" They say that the new tracks are "further proof that the Tennessee native is one to watch." We certainly think so!
Well folks, happy days. Rachel Baiman's new EP Thanksgiving is out now! The follow-up to her acclaimed debut Shame, this four-song collection allows Baiman to stretch out stylistically (with influences spanning bluegrass, old-time, and country) and tackles themes of Indigenous rights, home and homelessness, and love in hard times. Baiman's adept, insightful lyrics inspire an introspective holiday spirit. Get a copy (digital only) right here.
Head over to Folk Alley for a first listen to Rachel Baiman's new Thanksgiving EP. Folk Alley says the EP "does an exquisite job of employing folk traditions to ruminate on the beloved holiday from several different angles." The songs center around themes of Indigenous Rights, home and homelessness, and love in hard times. Baiman moves with ease from bluegrass, to folk, to old-time and country sensibilities over the course of these four tracks. Read the full write up and listen to the EP here.
