Uppity Women Unite

Longtime Atlanta resident Michelle Malone has a new CD coming out on October 10 called Sugarfoot. The album features another Atlantan, Shawn Mullins. Sugarfoot is streaming at Michelle's website, and you can order the record there (as well as other Michelle merch, including a 2-CD best of called 20/20.)

An artist similar to Michelle Malone (though not Atlantan but Australian) is Anne McCue. Anne has a new album called Koala Motel. She is an extraordinary guitarist, as well as a fine singer and songwriter. She had the guts (and the chops) to cover the Hendrix song "Machine Gun" on her last album. Lucinda Williams appears on Koala Motel, along with John Doe and Nancy Wilson (of the band Heart -- notice how I don't bother explaining who John Doe is.) You can hear the track with John Doe at Anne McCue's website. She is on a brief tour of the US this month. EMusic has the latest albums by both Anne McCue and Michelle Malone. Here are the songs that first got me hooked on these artists:

Anne McCue: These Things
Michelle Malone: Big Black Bag

Welll, now you're talkin'. I love that MM song, you put it on one of my favorite mix tapes ever.

I have just downloaded "Until the Day" from Emusic, so your mp3 blogging has created revenue for Michelle and her publishing co.

No doubt some fraction of your 25 cents will trickle down into the Atlanta economy as well. We all win!
