RIYL: Loretta Lynn, Tanya Tucker

Label: Third Man Records

Well would ya look at that!  Limited Third Man product that can be yours without having to 1) Drive to Nashville, 2) Buy on eBay, 3) Wait for 3 days within the confines of Detroit’s Clark Park in hopes that a bevy of balloons will fly overhead and explode with the shredded remains of a set of coordinates to an offshore drilling station owned by a disgruntled sea captain who will then trade you a limited flexi for one bucket of crude oil sludge.  You want exclusive vinyl, mother truckers?  Well then, now’s the time.

Margo Price, similar to country outlaw darling Sturgill Simpson, is part of a much-needed movement to bring the country back to country.  With tracks like Hurtin’ (On the Bottle) and Desperate and Depressed, Margo Price is the amalgamation of a heartbroken Loretta Lynn and a whiskey-bent, bloody-knuckled Tanya Tucker.  Gospel harmonies shake hands with a street fighting attitude on Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, a very promising debut for Price and a perfect addition to the Americana cool of Third Man Records.

This one’s coming from Rough Trade, so the Yanks are going to see a heftier price tag.  Keep in mind, though, that your price tag will drop during the checkout process for tax reasons.  Out the door, you’re looking at around $40 shipped.  That ain’t bad if you’re a TMR nut, and sure beats diving for crude oil.
