Birthday Giveaway, Part III: Jonah Tolchin — Clover Lane

Juli Thanki | July 11th, 2014

Earlier this month, young singer-songwriter Jonah Tolchin recently released his second full-length record (and Yep Roc debut), Clover Lane. Produced by Marvin Etzioni, the album – which includes guests like Chris Scruggs, Mickey Raphael, and Steve Berlin – is a damn good record that marks the New Jersey native, who’s currently on the road with Dave and Phil Alvin, as an Americana up-and-comer.

 

We’ve got five copies of Tolchin’s new CD to give away to Engine 145 readers, and since it’s Friday, we’re going to celebrate one of our favorite recurring features, the Friday Five, which has covered topics like hookers with hearts of gold, country singers who’ve appeared on Sesame Street, atomic bombs, New Wave covers, and songs about drag. And every now and again, we get musicians like Valerie June and Pokey LaFarge to put together their own Friday Fives.

Enter to win a copy of Clover Lane by leaving a comment below that mentions your favorite Friday Five from our archives. Winners will be chosen by random number generator on Tuesday, July 15 at 10 a.m. EDT and notified by email, so be sure to use a valid address.

    My favorite Friday Five was “Songs for Mama.” What can I say, I love my mama.

    My favorite Friday Five is Country Music on The Muppet Show. No contest. It was from The 9513 days, but I assume it still counts.

    Still waiting on that burger-themed installment, btw ;)

    I was just going to mention the VD Friday Five! Leeann beat me to it! OK. I’ll go with the Executioners’ Songs List. (But I really wanted to go with the other.)

    I’ll go with the Fishing Friday Five – and temporarily overlook the egregious omission of Big Whiskers.

    Mine would be the Billy Joe Shaver one.
