When I first heard Caleb Dailey’s incredible debut, Warm Evenings, Pale Mornings: Beside You Then, I was immediately hooked. I still can’t get over the idea of making a debut album of country covers, especially from someone who is still digging into all the various channels of country music. It’s a real moment of magic this year. So when I talked to Caleb about doing a mix, I couldn’t wait to see what would turn up. Once again, I was surprised. This mix features a handful of country-and-adjacent favorites, though many of them are from live performances which lend to the intimacy and immediacy of these songs. That’s not all, though, because John Wiese makes a couple of appearances plus some other random treats. Yet, Dailey makes it work. That’s just what he does.
Warm Evenings, Pale Mornings: Beside You Then is out now on Alien Transistor and I can’t recommend it enough.
