Coinciding with these releases, Brickell will perform a special show with Iron & Wine on January 29 at Radio City Music Hall.
Produced by Charlie Sexton, Brickell began writing her self-titled solo album during her 2003 tour in support of Volcano. The solo record was then put hold to focus on The Gaddabouts, a new project featuring Steve Gadd, Pino Palladino and Andy Fairweather-Low. Both conceived of and developed throughout the past decade, the two resulting projects were only coincidentally finished at the same time. Of the synchronicity, Brickell notes, ''it's like a horse race; both projects are kicking in the stall and I gotta let 'em run.''

Didn't know this record was coming out today and I saw it featured on iTunes and then checked Amazon MP3 ($2 cheaper!). After listening through 2 song samples, I was hooked.
Loved her Ghost Of A Dog record with TNB in the early '90s, and this has a lot of the same sensibilities - great melodies and flowing, confident performances.
Think Norah Jones meets Aimee Mann meets a T Bone Burnett production. Charlie Sexton produces with a ton of tasty players throughout.
Anticipate being one of my favorite albums of this year even though we're only 11 days in!
Edie could release all of her demos and every little project she takes on and it would be all worthy.
More people should take notice.
Many of these songs have been floating around the internet for years, but most people have never heard them. It's about time they had the chance. "Pill" is an instant classic, showing Edie's sense of humour mixed with her natural ability to make catchy fun songs & melodies. "Give it Another Day", "Been So Good", "2 O'Clock in the Morning" and in fact every song on this album make you wonder why more people aren't familiar with the gift of Edie Brickell.
What makes Brickell so intriguing is not only her distinctive vocals, but her musical choices over the years. If you have read any of my reviews you will know that one thing I appreciate above all else is a sense of flexibility and adventure, and that is exactly what Brickell has given her listeners over the past 25 years.
Her self-titled album, again produced by Charlie Sexton, as was 2003's "Volcano", is pure musical enjoyment. You can easily hear from the first track, "Give It Another Day", that Brickell is a truly underrated talent in the business. "Pill", "Always", "On The Avenue", "You Come Back" and "Bad Way" are all exceptionally subtle melodic tracks that stick with you after listening. "Been So Good", "2 O'Clock In The Morning", "Waiting For Me" and "It Takes Love" are not quite as good, but still very strong. At ten tracks, "Edie Brickell" is pure pop heaven, and one of Brickell's most enjoyable albums. Producer and guitarist, Charlie Sexton, is the right foil for Brickell's musical sensibilities.
The simple artwork of the cover lets you know that the music will be equally direct and pure. "Edie Brickell" demonstrates that there is still hope yet for independently released music. It proves that you don't necessarily need some slick studio wizardry from a big corporate music label to make music that connects with its audience.Read more ›

Bland. Mediocre. Not anything nearly as good as what was done with the New Bohemians. I wish I hadn't bought it.Published on March 7, 2014 by Saturnstyl
