Sweet Heart Rodeo
If you like Laura Cantrell’s voice but find her music ‘a bit too Country’ then fret not - even pedantic idiots like you have a saviour and her name is Dawn Landes.
The third album from this Kentucky singer-songwriter, Sweet Heart Rodeo manages to be pleasant and inoffensive without being tedious or twee. Quite a feat. Even the experiments with electronica come off and sit well with the overall acoustic vibe. Not a triumph, perhaps more an Austin 7.
