Album Review
Eliza Ridgeway
Reviewed 2013-03-15
Old-fashioned country collides with historic blues and jazz, dressed like a pinup and singing of creepers, devils and regrets. Billed as a pastiche of underground country and old-timey American roots revival. Shares some sound with anti-folk.
Solid fun, but the synthesis of voice and backing instruments doesn’t build up to the level of “irresistible.” Lyrics are half the point here – the Southern Gothic effect derives from lyrics with twists, dark, jokes, and much talk of mournful love. There’s a devil in my kitchen, cooking with my pots and pans. RIYL Neko Case, Gillian Welch, Jessica Rabbit. FCC clean.
1. A Cappella – stark, stylized, super-brief lead-in to track 2 - clean
2. Drawling ka-thunk ka-thunk, electric guitar, vocals aren’t 100 percent keeping up with the guitar/cymbal jam sessions, rocking roadhouse
* 3. Slinky jazzy, vibraphone, trumpet and cymbal
4. Blues, guitar and more cymbal
5. Switch-up to acoustic, bluesy folk, a style I’ve mostly only hear done by male vocalists so interesting just for the female voice
6. Male vocals added in for alternating verses. Country ballad, acoustic guitar. Yodelling break at 3 minutes – literally.
7. Jazzy trumpet, anti-folk mashes up with jazz/blues
**8. More cinematic and rolling, return of the vibraphone. Strong vocals.
9. Country/blues
10. Rockabilly
11. Ah –ooo, Ah-ooo, jaunty rollicking rockabilly
