In this week's print edition, Christian Schaeffer spoke with solo performers Cassie Morgan and Beth Bombara, who often join forces under the moniker Cassie Morgan & the Lonely Pine. The act's debut LP is Weathered Hands, Weary Eyes -- and in the article, Schaeffer describes the music like so:

Weathered amplifies the folk overtones of Morgan's earlier release; her acoustic guitar strums are simple, and Bombara's close harmonies and percussive flourishes keep the mood breezy but never lightweight. Opening track "His Hands Are Tied" saunters with the humid, slow-drip drama of an early Cat Power song, while "Beginendbegin" adds some experimental whimsy with the help of tape loops. Overall, the album takes the closely whispered, sparsely accompanied story-songs of Morgan's first EP and cuts a wider swath through more pronounced roots-music influences.

Listen to an MP3 below. The pair's CD release show starts at 9 p.m. on Saturday night at Off Broadway. The Northwoods and Pretty Little Empire are also on the bill. Admission is $7 if you're over 21, $10 if under.
