Angie McMahon has shared a cover of Oh Pep!’s ‘Tea, Milk & Honey’. It’s taken from Amerikinda: 20 Years Of Dualtone, an upcoming album celebrating the 20th anniversary of Nashville-based indie label Dualtone. It’s out on August 6 and also features Dualtone artists and alumni including The Lumineers, Brett Dennen, Gregory Alan Isakov, Mt. Joy, Shovels & Rope, and Langhorne Slim. Listen to McMahon’s version of ‘Tea, Milk & Honey’ below.
“Oh Pep! are one of my biggest songwriting inspirations, as well as being beautiful friends of mine,” McMahon said in a press statement. “I used to sit in the car outside my house after working long late night shifts, processing another day by listening to the magical words of Tea, Milk & Honey. This song is like medicine to me.”
Dualtone president Paul Roper added: “It’s a joy and privilege for us to be a part of bringing such amazing art into the world for 20 years. So much of what we do is also based on “feel” when we are pursuing new artists. We were already mesmerized by Angie’s music when we met her and her manager Charlotte in Nashville but the more time we spent with them, it just felt like ‘home’ being together. To work alongside incredible artists who also feel like kindred spirits is such an added gift. Angie McMahon is nothing short of a once in a generation talent, and her cover of “Tea, Milk & Honey” (from another one of our favorite Australian bands, Oh Pep!) is an absolute stunner.”
McMahon’s debut album Salt arrived in 2019. She followed it up with the 2020 sister EP Piano Salt.
