6am Repeat is a recurring feature here at Folk Hive in which we stream the latest track that plays incessantly in the earbuds when we awake at that hour and imbibe massive amounts of coffee and cigarettes in preparation for the advancing day. Consider it your jam of the day — a sweet, sweet gift from me to you. I love you, dude.
Having forgotten how it was that I stumbled upon Prairie Empire this past weekend, I’ll skip the introductions. In short, what you need to know is that this here is a lady with her shit together. And by that I mean, she is one of only two women who makes music so great I bothered to save it to my hard drive (the other is Patty Griffin, FYI), so obviously, her ducks are in a row. I mean, I’m not saving Ke$ha jams over here, bitches.
I highly recommend the following two tunes, along with any other Prairie Empire delicious-ness you can scour from within the interwebs.
Prairie Empire :: Snow [MP3]
Prairie Empire :: A Day At Coney Island [MP3]
