Recording: Doug Tielli

Artist: Doug Tielli

Songs: Cow Worries + With You and Without You

Recorded at Holy Oak Café, January 22, 2014.

Doug Tielli - Cow Worries

Doug Tielli - With You and Without You

Full review to follow. Although you might not know it when they start playing ambient mariachi and abstracted country songs, Doug Tielli's backing band (Chris Adiraanse, Bea Labikova, Raphael Roter and Heather Segger) are all sterling improvisers in the city's creative music scene. That gives Tielli a lot of leeway to play fast and loose with song structure without fearing the band behind him will get thrown off. The wonderful version of "With You and Without You" here forgoes the album version's more austere reverb meditations to become a warm hug of a wobbly singalong.
