Though I was familiar with Nashville-born, New York City-based singer Laura Cantrell mainly through her association with They Might Be Giants -- she sang on their 1992 single "The Guitar" and appeared in the video, plus she released her debut EP through John Flansburgh's Hello CD-of-the-Month Club subscription service (1993-96) -- I didn't really become a fan until her fourth album, 2011's 'Kitty Wells Dresses: Songs of the Queen of Country Music,' a set of mostly classic covers (except the title cut, written by Cantrell with her pal Amy Allison, who also guested on a 1992 TMBG track -- "Fingertips" -- and released a Hello Club EP).

I eventually sought out Cantrell's three previous studio albums -- 2000's 'Not the Tremblin' Kind', 2002's 'When the Roses Bloom Again, and 2005's 'Humming By the Flowered Vine' -- each containing mostly contemporary covers (by the likes of Allison, Jay Sherman-Godfrey, Amy Rigby and Lucinda Williams) with a classic or two thrown in and a few of her own songwriting efforts. Those CDs brilliantly demonstrated her appreciation of what country music has been and her open-mindedness about what it can be; album #5, 'No Way There From Here,' isn't much different, though this time she wrote or co-wrote all but one of the 12 tracks herself.

Cantrell's lyrics are typically thoughtful as they celebrate women in all their complexity and give voice to their desires, longings, everyday frustrations, etc.

What a voice LC has. I'd could listen to its plangent sweetness even it were telling me to hold the line for next available agent. Here, however, it's put to far better purposes with a selection of lovely ballads and sprightly, country-tinged tunes, mostly written by The Proprietress herself. LC tapped a new floating, flirting, high register key on some of the Kitty Wells Dresses cuts, which for me were among the highlights of that album (eg., Poison in Your Heart). That sweet tonality is put to even more infectious and tuneful use on this latest album, which really moves along with a light, yet deeply personal touch. In short, I think this may be my favorite LC album since WTRBA, and I think it's a true treat for the ears and for the heart.

Laura has always had great respect for country music's traditions, yet has managed to keep her music relevant to changing trends. This still sounds like a country album, but with some noticeable differences compared to yesteryear.

Laura wrote or co-wrote all of the songs except Beg or borrow days (written by Jennifer O'Connor). When I first saw the track listing, I wondered if Washday blues might by a cover of an obscure Dolly Parton track (a top 30 country hit in the 70's for her in America) but Laura's recording is her own song, and very impressive it is with a plaintive mandolin, sounding like a bluesy song should do in a country setting.

After a couple of plays, my provisional favorite tracks are Driving down your street (featuring a tastefully played banjo), the title track and Washday blues, but there is plenty of great music here that should delight all of Laura's existing fans and possibly win her some new fans.

I didn't know Laura Cantrell before I got this song compilation, but I will certainly listen to more of her music. The songs here have a country-folk sensibility, that is alternately amusing, sweet, thoughtful, wistful. Cantrell has a lovely, melodic voice. I could wake up and listen to this collection first thing every morning. And many days, I do just that! You won't be disappointed.

So happy to have this one, as the others are real favorites. Really appreciated "Kitty Wells Dresses," but the dimension and texture of a L. Cantrell release with her own songs is much better, in my opinion. More complicated?

This is just wonderful in every way. I had to stop listening to it on Spotify for a bit b/c I was afraid all of my friends would know how obsessed I am with this record. So great. "All the Girls Are Complicated" is definitely my new favorite song. I mean, it might tie with a couple of others but, if people ask, it's a go-to. So catchy and true. I can't help but want to dance and sing along. Brilliant!

Songs are wonderful. Glad Ms. Cantrell is recording again.

A pleasure to listen to her clear sweet voice.

An iPod special for me.
