The Marfa Spark

Over on Last.fm, Marybeth d’Amico put up a very short journal last week.

It doesn’t get much better than this. Tift Merritt recently interviewed Patty Griffin on her radio show, Spark. Listen here:

Don’t know how soon Marfa (TX) Public Radio will cycle to a new interview, but go listen to this now. Grab it, give it a quick go, savor it, come back to it later and immerse yourself in this glimpse into an artist’s soul.

I immediately fell in love with Patty Griffin from her first acoustic album. On the other hand I’ve been slow to warm up to the merits of Tift–unlike many one-hit wonders, I’m actually appreciating her talents more as she matures as an artist. Ms. Griffin has branched out into more pop-oriented ventures and well, maybe the older and younger edges of what I consider my generation are converging here.

Thank’s for the lead, Marybeth! Good luck at your show tonight.
