For those of you ‘unawares’ – the new Ray LaMontagne and The Pariah Dogs single “Beg, Steal or Borrow” came out on July 2nd. If you haven’t snagged it yet – what are you waiting for? Do it HERE! Why? Well if you like Ray LaMontagne then it’s a no brainer. The song sounds like anything else Ray LaMontagne has done…except backed by an amazing band (a band who’s name he’s added to the album cover – ‘The Pariah Dogs‘) If you aren’t familiar with LaMontagne you really need to check yourself. LaMontagne’s vocals are thick like honey…thick like smoke…just thick! He’s got this RASPY-quality to his voice, that for some other singers might come off sounding worn out but not for Ray. Ray’s rasp just adds to his appeal. When he’s singing about a girl, you can FEEL him breaking. It’s really beautiful. As if a new single to download wasn’t enough… the official website has finally been revamped and now features the album artwork for the new album, God Willin’ & The Creek Don’t Rise, out August 17th on RCA. My only complaint – no picture of Ray? I KNOW he’s notoriously humble and shy but he’s just so darn delicious to look at! Like a sexy woodsman…with a big, thick smokey voice.
