Caitlin Rose - Lately I've Let Things Slide

Ah Caitlin Rose, you've been missing from our lives for too long now. We're glad to have you back.

Taken from a charity covers compilation album entitled Lowe Country: The Songs of Nick Lowe released via Fiesta Red Records in September, the delightful country songstress returns with her version of Lately I’ve Let Things Slide. Caitlin’s debut album Own Side Now was one of our favourites of 2010 and also did well in that year's UK bloggers album of the year poll, coming in a respectable twelfth. Since then we’ve had her cover of Piledriver Waltz which seemed to get the backs up of a number of Alex Turner / Arctic Monkeys fans, but we suspect she’ll be on safer ground with this song.

Hopefully next time we bring you a Caitlin Rose song on Breaking More Waves it will be something of her own composition from her second album, but until then enjoy Caitlin’s warming tones, the slide guitar and piano tinkles of Lately I’ve Let Things Slide – a perfectly lazy and lovely Sunday tune, which we just happen to be bringing you on a Tuesday. But good music is good music whatever day of the week it is isn’t it? Lovely.
