Oh Darlin’ is just one of the meanderingly melodic single’s from Desiree Cannon’s latest album “Beech Sleeper”. The first thing that hits you about the single is the timeless style of the orchestration of the Oakland, California-based artist. The second is her unflinchingly arresting vocal style in which she recreates the same alluring harmony we enjoyed from the pioneers of Americana and Country Folk. If you could imagine what Angel Olson would sound like with an organ thrown into the mix you’d get a good idea of Desiree Cannon’s folkishly cathartic style. Whilst lyrically, you’re in for a narrative treat which captivates you from the first verse.
