Laura Cantrell – All the girls are complicated

Authentic country sweet n sour from the ex-pat Nashville veteran (surely she qualifies at this stage?), taken from her 6th album No way there from here.

Cantrell seems to love that her sisters in kind are complicated, although still wary of the fact.

A purring vocal turn, trilling guitars and a satisfyingly acerbic lyric are just some of its pleasures.

I love this line -

From the ones who tend their looks
To the ones that mind their books
To the one that’s got her hooks in you
