Play The Road's a Temptress

Content tabs


This is a generous 14-track compilation taken from a posy of individual albums by members of the TO female collective comprised of Scarlett Jane, Andrea Ramolo and Cindy Doire joined by Kristin Sweetland, Sarah Burton, Melanie Brulée, Faye Blais and Patricia Foster. What one gets is a smart songbook of alt-roots that variously swing, swoon, bob, sob, rock and cavil as these talented voices share their hearts ("Wonder" and "Strange Desire" - Melanie Brulée ), discomforts ("The Road's A Temptress" by Cindy Doire, included in this week's NCM Playlist), and rural roots ("Badger in the Bag" - Kristin Sweetland). Soon to be on iTunes, it's a shame this isn't immediately available to reach a wider audience via Bandcamp or Soundcloud. CDs can be purchased direct from the Ladies' website: LIWcollective.com.
