DOWNLOAD: “Gold Rush” – Basia Bulat
Canadian chanteuse and Bumpershine favourite Basia Bulat is making her first NYC appearance in a long while on Wednesday, Oct 7 at The Bell House (Buy Tickets). At Wednesday night’s show, she’ll be showcasing songs from her forthcoming album, Heart Of My Own, set for a January 26, 2010 release on Rough Trade. The Bell House is her first and last stop US stop before heading out on a small European tour (I’d imagine we’ll see some more North American tour dates come January).
Rough Trade Records is excited to announce the forthcoming album from Basia Bulat. Entitled Heart Of My Own, the album will be in stores on January 26, 2010. This album is the follow up to 2007’s Oh, My Darling which generated a groundswell of support from both the press and fans alike. NPR called the first single “In The Night” “one of 2008’s great singles” and Spin.com said, “Oh, My Darling’s lucky thirteen tracks showcase Bulat’s soothing, throaty voice and her dead-on aptitude for poignant, classic songwriting. From gracefully sad to hopeful and joyous, she exudes an earthy, organic quality to the music’s mystic, Phil Spector-like backbone.”
Heart of My Own was recorded with [former Arcade Fire drummer] Howard Bilerman (who was at control panel for Oh, My Darling as well) and nearly all the songs were written while on the road: traveling between cities, crossing the Canadian prairies, searching for a place to stop in the Nevada desert, trailing through the Smoky Mountains, standing in the bright dusk of a summer night in the Yukon.
