Today on Ecléctico you're listening to Frazey Ford, a singer and songwriter based in Vancouver. She was in a band called The Be Good Tanyas for a while in the early/mid 2000s, then broke out on her own and made this soulful record, her second on her own, a few years later. You'll go deeper with an excerpt from an article by Katie Presley on NPR Music.

And "Done," one of the album's clear standouts, offers up a profanity-laden indictment of past love that's both uncharacteristic and delicious in its ferocity. In Ford's hands, it's a dagger concealed in velvet. Backup singers Caroline Ballhorn (whom Ford met because the two are neighbors) and Debra Jean Creelman round out and mature Ford's voice, smoothing the edges of her unique, tangy diction without overshadowing.
