Cottrell first made her way into my speakers by way of her main gig, Richmond, Virginia doom trippers Windhand, whose most recent full-length, Soma, is literally one of the best albums I’ve ever heard….
Dorthia Cottrell’s solo record is a bulldozer of acoustic ambiance and stark vocal revery. All that muscle beneath Windhand’s racket has been laid bare, and while some of that feedback still lingers like stray gravel atop a disinterred, makeshift coffin, it’s not enough to distract or detract. It’s just right.
