Proof folk music shouldn't just conjure the past."No Depression (p.135) - "[T]he country-tinged "Moonshiner' is shot through with bittersweet slide guitar. The title track, despite its fatal implications, is a light and lively jazz tune, propelled by flittering cymbals, quick strums, and an air of barely suppressed agitation."Mojo (Publisher) (p.108) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[S]he always offsets hillbilly hangdog victimhood with a raised eyebrow of humour or some strangely uplifting musical moment."59.7967
