Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Brigid Kaelin plays the accordion and the musical saw on her new album. It says something about her unique approach to music.
Her bluesy vocals ignite several songs here.

Watch Out! warns about a temptress and Kaelin’s voice purr and seduces throughout.

Catty Woman Blues amusingly details running into an ex and his new girl. Kaelin’s vocal has a depth that’s necessary to convey the message. The melody is straightforward blues and well played at that.

Sunday Afternoon is a slow, undulating song that’s deeply sensual and she really pulls it off.

I’ll be your June Carter if you’ll be my one night stand

she pouts.

You Make Me Wanna Go to Church is a classic gospel with an ironic twist.

Brigid Kaelin’s album is great.
