Loving Takes This Course

Kath Bloom is a Connecticut-based underground folk/singer-songwriter. She recorded a bunch of music in the 1970s which went largely unnoticed until experiencing a renaissance in recent years. A new tribute record, Loving Takes this Course, will be released on the Aussie label Chapter Music in April. The record contains tracks by a number of indie-rock heavyweights, including Bill Callahan (smog), Mark Kozelek (Red House Painters/Sun Kil Moon), Devendra Banhart, Scout Niblett, and Meg Baird, among others. You can check out Devendra and Baird's tracks @ Naturalismo and Kozelek's track (also available on his recently-released Finally compilation) at his Myspace.

Here are a couple YouTube videos (neither official). Sadly, her voice has not aged all that well, as the second video shows:
