  1. Proof folk music shouldn't just conjure the past, but also sit down and have a drink with it in the present. [12 May 2006, p.82]
  2. 100
    On bluesy new tracks such as "Stubborn Beast" and "Moonshiner," she conjures a sensual, serious confidence that suggests she's ready to depose Cat Power as the queen of indie teardrop ballads.
  3. Whether she's writing original material or covering traditional tunes... the effect is the same. It's intimate, like a secret told readily.
  4. 88
    She's traded in the "Morphine" and creepy, hillbilly-chic of Escondida for a sound that's a hint more melodic and just a touch less disturbed. [#20, p.104]
