Patty Larkin

Regrooving The Dream

Vanguard

Patty Larkin’s Regrooving The Dream is a collection of some serious, intelligent, sophisticated, country music. Although not the easiest record to get into, once you get tuned into Larkin’s wavelength, you’re ready to experience some luscious songs. Her songs have a touch of a gothic feel that put her in company with bands like Freakwater and Jim White without actually sounding much like either one. She has a similar view but travels on a different path. Patty Larkin weaves her lyrics around some intricate melodies featuring Larkin on electric and acoustic guitar, keyboards, and mandolin. So many folk or country artists have difficulty balancing their lyrical prowess with their musical abilities. Larkin manages to be strong in both areas, thus creating a solid collection of songs.

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
