    While Angela Desveaux's Thrill Jockey debut, WANDERING EYES, positioned her as kind of a Gillian Welch for the Cat Power set (or vice versa), her follow-up album, THE MIGHTY SHIP, abandons most of its predecessor's Americana trappings in favor of a more rock-oriented sound. Though there are still some moody acoustic ballads here, they seem less tied to rootsy templates, and the more electric/upbeat tracks show that Desveaux's warm voice and introspective lyricism translate just as well to an indie-rock approach.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (p.90) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Angela Desveaux rests on the alt-country continuum somewhere between Lucinda Williams and Neko Case..."
    Magnet (p.116) - "[M]ost of these songs feature Desveaux's clear, uncommonly expressive voice conveying lyrics about tearing love apart and changes of heart."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.109) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "This likeable Canadian singer-writer has a good voice....There's more than a little Lucinda Williams on the lullaby-tempo 'Joining Another'..."
    Clash (magazine) (p.115) - "Title track 'Mighty Ship' is gospel inflected, while 'Other Side' has enough pedal steel to silence the most devoted Hank Williams fan."
