Bouldercrest Singing Group
As I've been listening to their album a lot lately, it seems an appropriate time to introduce C&T's readers to the Atlanta-based Bouldercrest Singing Group. They're an alt-country/indie quintet fronted by Paul Daniels (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, fiddle) with Thom Heckel (bass, vocals), Chris Hoke (electric guitar, lap steel), and Eric Young (drums, vocals).
Their songs are melodic but often rooted in longing or anguish; lost loves and unrequited affection appear to be their speciality. Their current album, Louise, also features a guest vocal by Daniels' daughter Maddie that is just adorable. I'm particularly fond of the album's opening track, "Nickel", which you can hear below. Recommended if you're fan of bands/tunes in the No Depression vein.
Here are a few tracks from Louise, courtesy of Foul Country Records:

You can purchase Louise from CDBaby. You can also hear more tunes and be their BFF on MySpace.
