Jam of the Day | Dawn Landes - Young Girl

Dawn Landes may live in Brooklyn these days, where she has built her own recording studio, but she was raised in Branson, Missouri, and Louisville, Kentucky. I mention this because when I listen to today's JOTD, "Young Girl," off Landes' newest record, Sweet Heart Rodeo, I think of the Midwest like I do when I listen to Son Volt's "Windfall" or Neil Young's "Out On the Weekend." I don't think of Brooklyn, or anything east of Ohio, really.

Check out the video below for "Young Girl." Landes stares you down, dances with rowdy grace, and rides a mechanical bull. My kind of girl.
