1996: Up in the Attic

Carrie Newcomer: Up in the Attic


We all have parts of our lives that we pack up in boxes and stash away, never to be seen again. In Up in the Attic, Carrie Newcomer’s narrator finds one of these boxes, and the memories it contains. The song comes from her album My Father’s Only Son. Newcomer plugs in and rocks out in some songs on this album, and those songs sound better than the rock efforts of many of her contemporaries among folk artists of that time. But Newcomer really shines in the quieter moments on the album, and they give a better idea of how she sounds today.
