Some albums just seem like the story behind their creation must surely be as tantalizing as the stories their songs tell. Molly Sarle’s Karaoke Angel is one such album. The Mountain Man vocalist began working on these exquisitely-observed Americana-infused slices of life in a trailer perched on a cliff in Big Sur, CA before taking the show on the road to Los Angeles, Durham, NC, and Woodstock, NY. Album opener “Human” starts the show firing on all cylinders: a gorgeous love song that manages to be wistful and joyous at the same time. The intensity doesn’t abate over the course of the record; it’ll put a smile on your face when you're not blinking away a sneaky tear.
