Rose covers Artic Monkeys for Record Store Day
Monday, April 16, 2012
– In honor of Record Store Day on April 21, Domino Records commissioned two very Arctic Monkeys covers from Caitlin Rose, the young indie artist from Nashville.
Rose recorded Alex Turner's Piledriver Waltz and Love is a Laserquest. The former first appeared in the British film "Submarine" as a bittersweet acoustic love song, and then later as a fleshed out Arctic Monkeys song from their most recent album "Suck It and See." Rose converted the song into a country rock ballad complete with slide guitar. Love is a Laserquest was done as a heartbreaking country song. Both songs will be pressed on a limited edition 7 inch for Record Store Day only.
Rose is currently in the studio recording the followup to her critically acclaimed debut, "Own Side Now."

CD reviews for Caitlin Rose
The promise implied so early on with Caitlin Rose's initial offerings - specifically, the covers EP "Dead Flowers" and freshman album "Own Side Now" - clearly comes to fruition with her sophomore bow "The Stand-In," a set of songs that finds her in clear contention for the big time.

Own Side Now
Much like the flower of her last name, Caitlin Rose walks a strange line between thorny and precious. "Own Side Now," the first full-length album by the 23-year-old Nashvillian, can be unapologetic in appropriate country music fashion: She croons about her chain-smoking habits on Shanghai Cigarettes and "angry broken heart" on Sinful Wishing Well. Other times, such as on the title track and For the Rabbits, her voice comes off eerily similar another befringed-brunette: indie »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Carlile goes from excellent to memorable musical event
The last time Brandi Carlile came through town, she was promoting 2018's "By the Way, I Forgive You," which would deservedly go on to win the 2019 Grammy Award for Best Americana Album. This time out, Carlile performed fewer songs from that strong effort, which amounted to a more well-rounded live overview of her career to date.... »»»
Concert Review: Tuttle does well by coming home
Molly Tuttle has won kudos for her acoustic guitar playing. So much so that she's captured the IBMA award for Guitarist of the Year, the first female to win that acclaim from the bluegrass organization. But it's not so much Tuttle's guitar playing that stood out live.
Yes, that serves her well for sure. But it's more that her... »»»
