A few weeks ago on the SIRIUS show, I highlighted a number of tunes found on the 2006 Kill Rock Stars indie-folk compilation The Sound And The Hare Heard. Not surprisingly, I later fielded a number of inquiries per one of the tracks featured in the set; Laura Veirs excellent and sparse “Cast A Hook In Me,” which can be also be found on her Saltbreakers LP — released on the Nonesuch label earlier this year. Check it out below. Oh, and if your in the Portland, OR area and in need of guitars lessons, Veirs is available.
