Amelia Curran
War Brides
(Gunner)
“Scattered and Small,” “You Won’t Find Me” and “All the Ladies” are just about the best trio of songs you’re going to hear. This album has a thematic sway between life on one’s own or with another, even if it’s hoping and waiting for distances to be crossed. The mood follows from carefree to wanting. Curran’s like Ron Hawkins, tough even when strumming an acoustic, thoughtful but not sentimental, lyrically sharp, woefully underappreciated. Phil Sedore contributes brilliant multi-instrumental playing—mandolin, accordion, trombone and more—that underscores Curran’s assuredness and clarity for her first record in four years.
