Found on her new EP Destinations, the song, adorned in a traditional country/blues arrangement, deals with the perplexing personal problems that can consume one’s mind regularly, especially during these head-scratching times. Sometimes, it just feels easier to over think than to move forward.

Lillie Mae: The New Face of Nashville's Alternative Country

Lillie Mae is the kind of woman who can knock you off your feet with a fiddle. Her new single, off the upcoming Jack White produced album, Forever And Then Some fills a void in an alternative country and folk-rock space sorely in need of female voices. "Over the Hill and Through the Woods" creates a panoramic view of a wide-open country space, which is refreshing in a music scene dominated by the urban and metropolitan. The song comes at country from a heavier rock angle. Distorted guitars and slap-happy drums carry along the simple but heavy hitting chord changes, while smooth but powerful vocals, complete with wide-panned harmonies ride the melody. If this easy country rocker, serving as a rebellious anthem against Nashville's country industrial complex, is any indication of the power of the upcoming album, we've all got a lot to look forward to from Lillie Mae this April.

New Caroline Spence album offers stark Americana drenched sadness

Hauntingly lonely, Caroline Spence’s voice rambles on through the verses of “Hotel Amarillo” like a lost soul whose all but given up looking for comfort. “Pull on into the Hotel Amarillo with a bottle of wine” she sings, lamenting the lack of a lover to wake up next to; the whole song delivered as if from someone to whom drinking is their only refuge from anxiety.

The despair of the Charlottesville, VA singer-songwriter exudes pure Americana; a sultry but sad voice paired with a stripped-down rhythm section complete with slide guitar and a modestly snarling electric.

After raising eyebrows with her previous releases Trains Cry and Slow Dancer, Spence’s new album Spades and Roses delivers on the high expectations for this young and promising artist. Here’s the music video for “Hotel Amarillo” from Spades and Roses, set to be released on March 3rd.
