Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
I was expecting Country. Perhaps it was the fringed leather coat on the cover. But I’m pleasantly surprised. “Taxi” has sort of a down home country feel to it. But the other songs are different. Some of the tracks are downright dirge-y. Especially “Frida”.
Wool has a voice that sounds very nice with this type of music. It’s clear, strong but sweet too. The songs are well written and clever.
“Dinosaur” is a really nice song. Might be my favorite here.
As a whole it’s very homey and comfortable reminiscent of Lucinda Williams.
