  1. Truth is, the release of Tin Star should set Ortega’s adopted home town alight.

    Her strident approach to country means she excels at rockabilly-flavoured tunes. [Dec 2013, p.71]

    Once you hear any of them, you’ll want more, especially since this compact 32 minute disc ends way too soon.

    Lindi Ortega--a Canadian relocated to Tennessee--deserves to be counted among them, with what sounds like it could be a breakthrough set.

    Tin Star doesn’t play around with the formula, but it’s much better off rollicking through a hot-blooded, swinging set than it is attempting to be some kind of self-conscious alt-indie crossover.

    They aren’t bad songs, but Tin Star is more interesting when Ortega turns her lyrical glance elsewhere.

    Ortega is more convincing when she leaves the music biz out.
