Review Summary: Folk in the moonlight, in front of a camp fire, sang by a witch.
We may argue all day about what makes an album special; songwriting, performance, originality and production are some of the criteria that most of us apply when we use logic. But art is far from logic; maybe in a subconscious level, certain albums have the ability to appeal to us instantly without even understanding initially why we connect to them so strongly. The obvious and easy – but honest – answer is that they hit us right in the feels.
Such an album is Dorthia Cottrell’s debut; full of emotions and landscapes. A mix between folk and country, Dorthia Cottrell is in a sense a highly atmospheric release…. I personally get images of Wyoming and large patches of land while others can even envision scenes from True Detective. Yes, there are times where the atmosphere of this album is that haunting…
[F]or folk enthusiasts Dorthia Cottrel has the potential to be one of the most enjoyable experiences of the year.
