More and more these days I find myself drawn to discs with a feel for time and space. Something indefinable that makes me not realize I've repeatedly played Mark of Cain, Lonely When You're Gone, Southern Cross, and AP Carter's Ain't Gonna Work Tomorrow without a care about how much time has gone by.
Hard to say what that feeling is, but I know I feel it for Antebellum Queens and I like it a lot. A spirited and graceful hybrid of early Muldaur and Ricki Lee, Davis' supple and versatile singing and playing are spotlight and focus. Be it funky and driven, the previously mentioned Mark of Cain or Atlanta's Burning or softer sojourns into more emotional realms—the must-be-heard Southern Cross and Monhegan Lullabye—it is my good fortune to report to you that there is a voice rising from the commercial mire.
