We've been huge fans of Jessica Lea Mayfield's version of country/roots meets 90's alternative ever since we first heard her. She recently left ATO Records and is a free agent in the music world. She's just put out tape demos part 1 on her Bandcamp page. These are incredibly rough demos of just her and a guitar recorded as lo-fi/DIY as humanly possible. She's opening up the songwriting process to her fans at a very early point, and is welcoming us to imagine the songs however we want. And these songs could end up going in any possible direction, or no direction at all. As a fan, it's such a special opportunity to hear an album in such a raw format.
You can listen to "warped and melted" below. tape demos part 1 is available now via Jessica Lea Mayfield's Bandcamp. For more on Jessica Lea Mayfield, check out her Facebook and Twitter.
