A small record label is going to get very lucky in the near future. After she moved to LA and was released from her contract with XL Recordings, Holly Miranda has spent the last couple of years writing, recording and perfecting a new album. At Glasslands on Sunday night, much of the new album material was on display. From the first notes of the opener “Mark My Words” it was very much apparent that Holly is truly “back”, and as she worked through the set with a full band (including horns) I came to the very inescapable conclusion that the new album is the best music she’s ever written. As the new record is shopped to the appropriate label, my guess is that it won’t be long before someone snaps it up. The songs magnify all of Holly’s strengths — her ability to write and perform everything from blues-based rock to sweet love songs, and many styles in between. We’re streaming “The Only One”, a song that I had never heard before but which struck me instantly with its true beauty. We really could have streamed any highlight, because there were many. Holly Miranda will play again in NYC at Rockwood Music Hall on July 17.

We recorded this set with our installed rig (Naiant Cards plus board) and the sound is superb. Enjoy!
