8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 21st November 2014
“Sings The Delta” is an album of all original material, her first in sixteen years, despite what the title may lead you to believe. It is also one of those country albums that has one foot in the traditional and one foot in the alt. country genre.
There’s a timeless quality to this album, this is down to her voice, the instrumentation and tasteful production. The songs also come from somewhere organic, she’s singing about the land where she is from and where she was nurtured.
The opening track “Go Ahead or Go Home” is a magnificent start to proceedings – upbeat and perfectly pitched. There’s a soulful gospel element introduced on “The Kingdom Has Already Come”. “Mama Was Always Telling the Truth” recalls Victoria Williams. DeMent’s voice has a similar quality, but it seems to be more apparent here.
This is good stuff and will be loved by any self-respecting fan of folk-tinged country.
