I just bought "Hell Among the Yearlings," Gillian Welch's first CD.
BEST. CD. EVER.
I would link to the Amazon page where you can buy it, but I'd rather you went to your local independent music store to get it. So there.

I could write some of the lyrics down, but honestly it's her haunting voice and the way she works her banjo that makes the songs perfect (though she's a decent lyricist also). And wouldn't "work your banjo" be a good metaphor for...something?

And who turned me onto Gillian Welch in the first place? Amy, of course (from the french 'amie,' or 'friend').
