Music Friday: "Twilight," "Sweetheart of the Rodeo," "Straight Lines," "Young Girl," & "Southern Pacifica"

Dawn Landes is a singer-songwriter I discovered not that long ago. When Justin Townes Earle performed "Harlem River Blues" on Letterman, Jason Isbell informed his "friends" on FB that Landes sang with Earle that night.

Since then I've been wearing out the two albums I have of hers--Fireproof and Sweetheart Rodeo, and I thought I'd provide a representative sample of her work: the haunting "Twilight," the uptempo "Sweetheart of the Rodeo," "Straight Lines," and the addictive "Young Girl" (video)/ "Young Girl" (live).

For a bonus, I've also thrown in Landes and Josh Ritter playing his song, "Southern Pacifica," in their kitchen.
