Single review by KevW
If you've been expecting to fall into a post-Christmas case of seasonal affective disorder then you can forget special lighting or vitamin D supplements, the next few months are going to fly by in a haze of beautiful music. As we've mentioned before, the first few months of the year are often home to some of its greatest albums, and Nashville songstress Caitlin Rose is planning to lift our spirits with some incredibly uplifting and universally appealing alt-country. Maybe her formative years in indie music have added the extra ingredients that lifts her music above the usual Uncut-flavoured Americana fare, but whatever the reason her music often dazzles, and 'No One To Call' is one such song.
New album 'The Stand-In' will be with us at the end of February and just to make sure us UK folk don't miss out on her stirring take on sublime countryish tunes, she's heading to the UK for some live gigs too. 'No One To Call' is definitely inspiring although the subject matter suggest otherwise. Her exceptional voice is at the forefront and the upbeat backing manages to be both slick and soulful whilst retaining enough of an alternative edge to prevent her falling into Jools Holland territory (I'll bet you a tenner now that she appears on the show while she's over) and you suspect that her loneliness will be short lived and pretty soon people will be queuing up to call her.
