Editor's note: the first time I listened to this record I didn't quite hear the psychabilly Jesus move much inside me. This time not so much as well but it definitely has a hippy feel to the Christianity. Which is a good thing. Too many soulful crusaders and we'd merely have a glee club of heavenly harmonics. Here, we have some mournful, sinful young adults pontificating on Jesus when they don't even know who they are. Such are our travels.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
