Song of the Week: “Can’t Cut Loose” by Erin Rae

by Douglas Cowie on 21 September 2018

Each Friday I pick a song–new, old, borrowed, blue–that’s been on my mind and in my ears, and write a short post about it.

This is “Can’t Cut Loose” by Erin Rae:

Erin Rae sang with Hiss Golden Messenger on a few songs of their set at End of the Road this year, and Hiss Golden Messenger said we should definitely check out her own set later in the weekend, so I took their advice. Her songs are basically all beautiful country songs in the same vein as “Can’t Cut Loose,” and that’s no bad thing at all. She put in a plea from the stage for people to crowd surf, but it was early on a Sunday afternoon and nobody did, which I still think is a shame.
