Tunes for a Monday Morning

Here are two more strong performances from Music Fog's Americana music series.

Above: "God Loves Me," from Canadian singer/songwriter Melissa McClelland  -- a dark tune with just a hint of Three Penny Opera about it, performed here with fellow-Canadian Luke Doucet.

Below, "Absence," from Carrie Rodriguez, a Mexican-American singer/songwriter out of Texas. She's performing here with Hans Holzen, originally from Nashville, now based in Brooklyn.
