I had Monday and Tuesday off this week, so it is with considerable surprise that I had the realization that, hey, today is Thursday! That would be my day to post, and since I had nothing planned or ready, well, meet Samantha Crain and the Midnight Shivers. Straight outta Shawnee, Oklahoma, this crew serves up solid roots music with a bit of a creepy edge to it. I’m not sure what “Traipsing Through the Aisles” is about, exactly, but Crain sings “I did something wrong” so many times at the end of the song that, no matter how sweetly she croons, I kind of believe her. Look for The Confiscation EP to be released in summer 2008.
