No One To Call
Label: ATO Records (AT0)
Her mom won a Grammy for writing with Taylor Swift, but the Arctic Monkeys covers Caitlin Rose did on a 2012 Record Store Day single might better prepare you for her sound on this 2013 album: Tasteful, jangly, evanescent, shy-voiced, vaguely shaped, usually spare but occasionally embellished in gray washes of sound, this is indie pop in country clothes. Rose perks up some on "Menagerie," its lyrics seemingly referencing "I Love the Sound of Breaking Glass" by Nick Lowe, whose tribute album she led off in 2012. Then she closes with a sultry, lounge-horned show blues about dialing an old flame.
