Artist: Carolyn Mark and NQ Arbuckle, Album: Let's Just Stay Here, Song: Downtime

"Letting off steam as only I can, ever since that sleeping dog got up and ran."  Carolyn Mark is a singer songwriter from British Columbia and NQ Arbuckle are from Toronto.  They collaborated and released this gem of an album in 2009, entitled, Let's Just Stay Here.  The track, Downtime, is actually a cover of a Jr. Gone Wild song.  It was off their final album in 1995 called, Simple Little Wish, that Carolyn Mark played on.  It's a great dark country, roots rocker.  The album was released on Carolyn Mark's label, Mint Records but recorded in Toronto.  Carolyn Mark has been recording since the nineties and was previously in bands such as The Vinaigrettes and the Corn Sisters with Neko Case.  You can follow her at http://www.carolynmark.com/index.html.  NQ Arbuckle are Neville Quinlan (NQ), Peter Kesper, Mark Kesper and John Dinsmore.  They've been recording as a band since 2002 and are signed to Six Shooter Records.  You can follow them at http://www.myspace.com/nqarbuckle.  The album is available on Itunes and Amazon.  You can listen to the song, Downtime, on You Tube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liBsJNflTgw).  As always, you can hear this song as well as others that I blog about each day on Live 365 (http://www.live365.com/stations/raisedoncndnradio).  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
