"[Griffin] possesses the kind of sultry tone that suggests hidden meaning, raw emotion and bruised romance.."
On her tenth album Patty Griffin dives deep into the mysteries of love and nature, soundtracked by an organic and smokey mix of blues, jazz, folk and country noir.
She possesses the kind of sultry tone that suggests hidden meaning, raw emotion and bruised romance. Songs snake and meander by, woven around drones and mantra-like repetition making the album sound like it's in its own otherworldly time zone. Atmosphere is paramount across all of these richly ornate songs that show a songwriter willing to experiment and push her boundaries, with constantly mesmerising results.
