Faye Webster – “Both All The Time”

Zeke Robinson

Atlanta singer-songwriter Faye Webster released her debut album Atlanta Millionaires Club on Secretly Canadian earlier this year. Her unique blend of sideways alt-country, folk-pop, and soft-rock yielded some truly interesting songs — including “Flowers,” a trip into R&B alongside rapper, producer, and Awful Records impresario Father — and I meant to blog about some of them before always getting sidetracked for one reason or another. Fortunately, Webster has released a new song today through the Adult Swim Singles Series, affording me another opportunity.

The new one is called “Both All The Time.” It’s a simmering, melancholy ballad with momentum, its understated keyboard and guitar work topped off by lush pedal steel and brass. Webster narrates a sad confessional with her usual low-key frankness, explaining, “There’s a difference between lonely and lonesome, but I’m both all the time.” It’s one of the prettiest songs I’ve heard in a long time, self-assured in its despair.

Listen below, and if you like what you hear, stick around for Atlanta Millionaires Club.
