With a sleepy, soulful delivery akin to Lucinda Williams at her sultry best, Meg Hutchinson knows the art of restraint. Though the tempo of her music rarely strays from a soothing andante, she allows drama to build from emotionally resonant lyrics and quietly engaging melodies. This album, the singer/songwriter's fifth, features 12 laid-back acoustic numbers with minimal percussion and guitar overdubs, and was released by the respected folk label Red House Records.
