By now the amount of doom metal musicians professing their admiration for Townes Van Zandt and putting out a country record is getting out of hand. However, within this peculiar niche of the sub-genre, the debut solo album from Windhand vocalist Dorthia Cottrell is miles ahead of anything her contemporaries have released….
A decade in the writing, these deeply intimate songs have been given ample time to mature and develop before finally being committed to tape. The result is a collection of tracks that while sparse, nonetheless feel fully formed, solely down to the strength of Cottrell’s songwriting and vocal prowess. Despite the disparity of the timeline in which these songs were written, this feels like an album in the truest sense, not merely a collection of songs thrown together.
