Portland, OR's Kassi Valazza is referred to as a "cult country sound," and once you hear her latest single you'll get it. "Watching Planes Go By" is definitely country, but it's not quite any country you've heard. It may have a bit of a 70's country base, but it just goes off in bizarre an unexpected directions. Valazza and her backing band (TK & the Holy Know-Nothings) have crafted a song that starts off quiet and haunting in an outsider art kind of way that slowly morphs into a psychedelic indie/noise art freak out. It has this wonderful Fairport Convention meets Daniel Johnston meets Sonic Youth sound, and if that even remotely sounds like your kind of thing, you need to check out "Watching Planes Go By."
You can listen to "Watching Planes Go By" below. Kassi Valazza Knows Nothing is due out May 26 on Loose, and is available for pre-order through Bandcamp. For more on Kassi Valazza, check out the artist's website.
