Editor's note: after posting a record every day for over a year straight, one or two of them gets to you to the point that you want to either smash it or off yourself. This is one of them. The repetitious same-sounding aspects of this one got to me a little bit. Of course I've been nursing a cold for a week and a simultaneous mouth sore that aches whenever I chew or open my mouth so a little irritation in most things is expectant. The second side of the LP features some singing and that saved it from bodily harm. I'm pretty sure that taken in small doses this music isn't as caustic as it's making me feel right now. A further listen in more healthy times might even make me change my mind.
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!
