    Good luck trying to fit this album in a specific genre. There's blues, folk, some country, and other things too. And they all sound wonderful. But more than the music, her voice is truly enchanting. It feels like out of this world. The lyrics are beautiful as well.

    I wish more people would hear this. The best tracks: Somebody to Love, and the title track (it has a kick-ass guitar solo).

    Credit June's vinegary, slightly oddball vocals, equal parts Diana Ross and Dolly Parton, which guide each song like an old tractor retrofit with LED high beams: luminous, ancient, unstoppable.

    Pushin’ Against A Stone is an impressive calling card to the rest of the world that this, until now, under heralded artist is both an adept student of American folk music traditions and a modern day practitioner with perhaps preternatural talents.
