Molly Gene One Whoaman Band
Hello, No Depression! I thought it was about time to start a blog here. I’m looking forward to getting involved with this most august of music communities. This week, I’m gonna focus on some drrrrrty women’s blues. And today we’re gonna start with Molly Gene.
I’m not reviewing the album here, because I haven’t listened to it (though her previous album is available on Spotify.) I listened to “Country Lover” and “Smells Like Low Tide” and I thought, “What. Is. This?”
Really, it’s what would happen if riot grrl and the Delta blues conceived of a bastard child after a whisky-sodden night. (I’ll tell you more about one of their legitimate children on Friday.) “Kings and Queens” is much less raucous and, in my opinion, exhibits Molly Gene’s range as a writer and a singer.
