Caleb Klauder, "Can I Go Home With You", DANGEROUS MEs & POISONOUS YOUs (Self-released)

caleb1 Ending our multimedia coverage of Caleb Klauder's trip to Sweden—would, dear readers, that technology allow you to smell the herring—here's a track from his country project's debut album, DANGEROUS MEs & POISONOUS YOUs. The bluegrass/ stringband virtuouso embraced the glossier tinge of Americana with this record, mixing Kitty Wells and Ray Price covers with well-cast originals, and the toe-tapping honky tonk romance "Can I Go Home With You" showcases the strengths of Klauder's vision: Raw-boned authenticity bent toward Nashville ebullience and acoustic proficiency harnessed toward quiet diligence. Perfectly soundtracks boozily chasing a hoop-skirted lass 'round the silo, and...well, what were you planning for tonight?
