Catherine Irwin is half of Freakwater, the old-timey country duo she does with her cool friend Janet Bean, and she also puts out albums on her own. She has a plaintive voice that gets a little hillbilly holler when she goes high at the end of a line. Her songs are perfect, sad and exactly the sort I imagine getting written on some Kentucky porchfront come dusk. This song, “Mockingbird,” is off her newest one and it obsesses me a bit.
