Album of the Week: Death Won't Send A Letter

Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons: Death Won't Send a Letter

My first experience with Cory Chisel was live in the front row at one of his shows opening for Brenden Benson in Nashville. We actually went to the show to see Brenden Benson just to go see some live music while my friend was visiting but I instantly fell in love with Cory and bought his album the next day. I've been listening to him on repeat ever since! His sexy soulful voice (reminscent of a raspy Caleb Followill in some ways) keeps me sane on my long nights that I have to drive for work. I love his lyrics too... I'll post my favorites next to the song links!

Excerpt from the album bio:
"The songs on Death Won't Send A Letter were recorded primarily at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, TN with Chisels backing vocalist/keyboard player Adriel Harris and Little Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather) on initial tracking. Cory, Adriel and Little Jack were then joined by Jacks longtime collaborator Patrick Keeler (The Raconteurs, The Greenhornes) on drums. With Patrick and Jacks driving rhythm section the albums sound took on a grittier hue. And in Brendan Benson Cory found a writing and arranging partner that birthed the lead album track Born Again. Carl Broemel from My Morning Jacket also contributes on guitar."

Listen to:

Angel of Mine (live)

Tennessee "i'm dying to love somebody like you love him" and "kiss me deeper i'm leavin soon..." and "i would stand in disgrace. i would spit in my saviours face. my coat tattered and torn. just to know that my love will be reborn" ok so pretty much this whole song!

Love is Gone "cut me with your song but don't let me bleed too long" this is my favorite cory chisel song!

So Wrong for Me
