To say that we were big fans of Carsie Blanton's 2021 Love & Rage would be a huge understatement. Her blend of folk, jazz, pop, and even punk just works for us. I don't know much about her new song. "In the Middle of It" just popped on my Spotify Release Radar playlist and Google isn't helping much. This new song is an upbeat track about helping friends out in their time of need. It's more on the folkier end of things, but no one can do a warm, cheery song with the same sincerity that Blanton does. It's really a sonic hug, which would normally push me away but Blanton's charm will suck in even the most curmudgeonly music snob.
