Track Of The Day :: Liz Wiegard - Girl You Called Sweet
Words: Linn Branson
Liz Wiegard is a new name to me, but if all her work is the calibre of this debut single, then she won't be unknown much longer.
'Girl You Called Sweet' (coming from her first EP, 'Into The Wild Blue', expected release in October) is one of those songs that sends a tingle down your spine, a closed eyes head nod, and perhaps a little shiver of emotion. The quality of the St. Louis, Missouri-raised, now Los Angeles-based, alt-folk singer/songwriter's voice, production and lyrics are second to none, and while she may have a 'folk' tag to her name, this is not 'folk' in any traditional sense but the kind built into an electronic component, expressive percussive rhythm and acoustic guitar.
Four minutes and 43 seconds of unadulterated delight.
