WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In, Turn Up): Jolie Holland “All Those Girls”

With her drawling accent and sepia-tone vocals, Jolie Holland is something else. A sound unmistakeable, taken with it or leave it, the crooner seems to wrap her lyrics around her fingers while strumming her guitar, twisting and turning them over to squeeze the most meaning out of the mundane. For her latest release, Pint of Blood, Holland goes on tour with the timeless folk troubadours, The Jayhawks and makes an appearance in Milwaukee this Wednesday, November 9th at Turner Hall. Turn “All Those Girls” up and savor the heartbreaking guitar tones Marc Ribot wreaks havoc on to make this song a bittersweet heartbreaker.
