Sunshone Still CD release, Hausman, Danielle Howle

When: Fri., Feb. 10 2012

SUNSHONE STILL From great tragedy comes great art, the old saw goes. But as good as Columbia native Chris Smith’s new record — TheWayTheWorldDies — is, rest assured he’d take back its inspiration in a heartbeat: in 2010, Smith’s brother killed himself, and these 10 poignant songs deal with the grief, anger and incomprehension that followed and led, eventually, to acceptance. Musically, Smith bridges out some from his previous desert-baked sound (which fit the Kit Carson-inspired tale of 2007’s Ten Cent American Novels), and the more rock-flavored songs here are graced with beautiful guitar fills from our late friend Rodney Lanier. With Hausman and Danielle Howle. (John Schacht)

Price: $10
