Caroline Smith and Jesse Schuster @ The Electric Fetus

Minneconomy Sessions

Last Thursday I ran into Caroline Smith (of Caroline Smith and the Good Night Sleeps) at the Electric Fetus playing a small acoustic set with band mate, Jesse Schuster.

After the release of Backyard Tent Set last year, I’ve wondered if we could expect something new from Caroline anytime soon. The Minneconomy Session (also featuring Romantica) also served as the CD release for a live album Smith and Schuster recorded at the Cedar Cultural Center. Along with some familiar tracks from Tent Set the live album also features five new ones all in the folk-y, youthful Sleeps spirit that I enjoy so much about them.  One of these new tracks, “Denim Boy”, is currently streaming on their Myspace. Give it a listen.

The handmade album art was a nice touch.
