CD Review – Jennie Arnau
Jennie Arnau’s gorgeous fourth album starts out with the beautiful mid-tempo “For the Winter” which brings to mind Allison Krauss. That sentiment is kept up on the following track “The Sparrow & the Gods.” Arnau’s music is like a carbon copy of Lucinda Williams and Kathleen Edwards, but her voice is so pure that she sounds like audio honey. Even on the bluesy, “The Sharp Things,” Arnau’s pipes pull the trigger to the bullet of heartache and unleashes it straight to your heart. This is the album you hear when you are driving out in the middle of nowhere and you stop to admire the miles of untouched landscape. This is the album that brought Arnau back to her roots. And it will bring you back to yours.
