Editorial Reviews

This debut from Seattle singer-songwriter Zoe Muth has been hailed by dj's and critics as one of the best country albums of the year. Here are twelve beautifully rendered vignettes of heartbreak and longing. Filled with subtle wordplay, never falling simply into cleverness, they give us truths about our lives and relationships that are subtle and unflinching. Muth's voice, a sweet, lilting drawl, reminiscent of Emmylou Harris and Iris DeMent, has a resilience that doesn't abandon love so much as look it straight in the eye. The funny thing about good heartbreak songs is that they don't make you feel bad, they make you feel better, and these are songs you can lean on and not worry about them breaking beneath you. Songs that sound so true and familiar, you feel as if they've been around forever. Heartbreaking pedal steel, dusty mountain mandolin, and guitar licks that sound straight out of Bakersfield fill the spaces in between. Together with the Lost High Rollers, a truly inspired ensemble of laid back, rootsy honky-tonkers, Muth works within the traditions of classic country music to create an original sound all her own.

''With the voice of a honky-tonk angel and songs that sound steeped in the classics but tug at the heart with their own distinctive imagery, she's the real deal, as this remarkable album demonstrates. Easily my favorite debut album so far this year from a truly special singer and songwriter.'' - Don Slack (host of Swingin' Doors, KEXP 90.3 FM Seattle)

9 out of 10 stars from Americana UK: ''What a fabulous record this is. I hope there's a grand future for this band.''

''Great albums don't come along all that often, this is one to pay attention to.'' - Ian Hughes (host of Walkin' the Floor, KBCS 91.3 FM Seattle and No Depression Podcaster)

''If your favorite country singers come from the vinyl era, don't let this one pass you by.'' - Craig Shelburne, CMT

''This is one of those debuts you'll remember hearing for a long time, like the first time you heard Iris DeMent sing, or Nanci Griffith. Muth has all the right stuff.'' - Chris Jorgensen, Billings Gazette

It's simply not true that they don't make country music like they used to. Zoe Muth and the Lost High Rollers are Exhibit 1 in support. This CD sounds like it issued from some alternate universe populated still by Hank Williams, Kitty Wells, Jim Reeves, Patsy Cline, Faron Young, Skeeter Davis, and Buck Owens. The lyrics and arrangements are both filled with incredible hooks. Halfway through first listening to "Middle of Nowhere," I found myself singing along to the chorus: "In the middle of nowhere at my own home address." The first song, "You Only Believe Me When I'm Lying," has one of those great, witty twists that country musicians do best of all. (Think of "From now on all my friends are gonna be strangers . . .") The closing song, "Never Be Fooled Again," is truly heartbreaking: a full, sad story in a few minutes.

Despite her youth, Ms. Muth has a voice that sounds like she's seen far too many miles of dusty roads and far too many dingy rooms. It's a plaintive but comfortable voice--and, above all, an intelligent voice that fits the lyrics. The band is brilliant. Dave Harmonson (electric guitar and pedal steel) plays lines that wrap around the lyrics, supporting them emotionally. The mandolinist, Ethan Lawton, plays understated licks that are steeped in the classics. And the rhythm section keeps everything moving along in fine, tight fashion.

The second CD, "Starlight Hotel," matches the high achievement of this one. Buy it too!

5.0 out of 5 stars This album is incredible. January 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I heard of this album through a friend. I had told her about the Steep Canyon Rangers and Cherryholmes and by following the "If you like these artists, you may like these...." The music is raw, simple, pure, beautiful. The lyrics are amazing and when it isn't just Zoe singing (and her voice is very similar to a young Emmylou Harris-gorgeous!) the Lost High Rollers are very tight and the chemistry of the entire ensemble is wonderful. I cannot recommend this album enough! One of the best finds of 2009.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gem out of Seattle May 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Who would have thought such a perfectly twangy sound and timeless country lyrics could come from the land of ferry boats and salmon. Zoe is a terrific singer/songwriter and she's got a great band to back her up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best New Country Music Artist January 14, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I can't recall the last time I was so wowed by a new artist. In fact, it's been two years since I last wrote a review on Amazon, so it's been that long since I was wowed by anything, period. Zoe Muth has it all - great tunes, great lyrics and a genuinely soulful voice. The most amazing thing about this album is why songs like "Hey Little Darlin," "Not You" and "Hard Luck Love" aren't in heavy rotation on country music stations everywhere. And they aren't even the best songs on this CD - the impossibly sad "Never Be Fooled Again" is the one I've listened to the most. For the most part, the music doesn't break new ground, but I wouldn't have it any other way - the songs are the perfect vehicles for Zoe's wonderful voice and lyrics. Good luck not playing this one over and over; I tried not listening to it yesterday but couldn't get the songs out of my head. It's that good, people. Buy two copies and give one to a friend. I plan to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar debut album from Zoe and the band... August 24, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I am so glad I heard about this album. If you are a fan of real country music, this CD will come out and grab you. Zoe has a captivating voice that kind of reminds me of a countryish Stevie Nicks. Her voice, the great lyrics, and amazing band (especially the pedal steel player) combine for a classic album. Fans of Emmylou, Iris Dement, Eilen Jewell, and Tift Merritt will really dig this album. What a keeper! Talent like this deserves to be heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars It sneaks up on you December 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this one after picking up Starlight Hotel. That one grabs you from the get-go and doesn't let go. This one comes around on your blind side, working its way in until you realize what a finely crafted album it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tops at KBIG August 22, 2011
By JoeG
Format:Audio CD
Zoe was in the KPIG studio a couple of weeks
ago and just blew us all away. The group
was opening at Crepe Place that night, but
the radio show that day knocked me over. This
is the next Nanci Griffin and maybe even
better. - JoeG Santa Cruz
