karen elson Double Roses (CD, £10.50)label: 1965
English-born Nashville-based singer songwriter Karen Elson releases her second album ‘Double Roses’ via 1965 Records. Elson released her debut ‘The Ghost Who Walks’ in 2010. ‘Double Roses’ was recorded in Los Angeles, at the world-renowned United Studios (neé Ocean Way) in Hollywood, with producer Jonathan Wilson (Jackson Browne, Father John Misty, Conor Oberst). Elson, who had been writing and demoing songs throughout her recording hiatus of the past few years, spent three weeks in Los Angeles working with Wilson to put the album together. A long-time fan of the sun soaked sounds of the Laurel Canyon era, it was the perfect place to commit her songs to tape. The album features collaborations with an array of musical talent, including The Black Keys’ Pat Carney, Father John Misty, Laura Marling, Benmont Tench, Pat Sansone (Wilco), Nate Walcott (Bright Eyes) and Dhani Harrison.
