New York Times: The Playlist

Check it out: “Nobody Home” from the new album Call Me Lucky, featured in today’s New York Times playlist:

“Humor faces down desolation in “Nobody’s Home” from Call Me Lucky, an existential ramble from the latest album by the sage, scratchy-voiced, blues-rooted, 73-year-old songwriter Chris Smither: “Everybody wants to text me ‘cause they ain’t got nothing to say,” he notes. He recorded two versions, as he did with half a dozen of the album’s songs; one’s a ragtimey cackle, while the other is slower and more pensive, revealing a little more darkness.” – Jon Parales
