The Weekly Neville's Quarter Acoustic Breakdown Update - February 10th, 2018

This is our Obviously Awesome Women Musicians edition of the Neville's Quarter's Acoustic Breakdown Spotify Playlist! 
Yes, we always make our titles as long as possible... 
We added the Becky Buller BandMolly TuttleSierra HullAlison Krauss, and Ani DiFranco. Respectively, the songs added are "Speaking' to That Mountain," "Friend And A Friend," "Weighted Mind," "Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us," and "Sunday Morning." These are our favorite tracks of theirs (though it is really hard to pick!) hope you enjoy these excellent additions. 

"Speaking' to That Mountain"
by Becky Buller
This is great Bluegrass, full of soul and spunk. Banjo, violin, guitar, and excellent vocals. There's a great beat and easy to dance to or just bounce in your seat to in the car.  We love the old gospel feel that Becky has created. "Speaking to that mountain" are such powerful words. 

"Friend and a friend"
By Molly Tuttle
Molly is so cool and her talent is obvious. This song is really fun and uplifts the soul. The energy is boundless but soft at the same time.  It's a song about needing friends to help you through rough times; who can't relate to that? They're celebrating friendship and it's a lot of fun to listen to.

"Weighted Mind"
By Sierra Hull
The song for us is so captivating because of the delicately chosen dissonance that frames every musical phrase. The song is about the walls that get built up sometimes between people in relationships and how they need to come down for better communication. The mandolin playing is worth listening to, Sierra is a fantastic musician. There are wise words in the song... like letting walls exist is wasting time! Lessons learned: sometimes you got to suspend your beliefs in order to see what somebody else is seeing. 

"Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us"
By Alison Krauss and Robert Plant
You can walk slowly and feel deep while listening to this song. The exotic melody in this extraordinary.  The words will guide you through your hardship and heavy heart. 

"Sunday Morning"
By Ani DiFranco
The leading guitar in this song is luscious, deep and wholesome.  There are strings and piano in here too that are lovely.  It's a very chill, relaxed song but still full of movement that makes you feel alert and present in the moment.  Listening to this on a Sunday Morning would indeed be a good choice to start the day.
