An album of traditional American folk with an Appalachian feeling; fans of Karen Dalton and Jean Ritchie take note. Most songs have well developed harmonies with two female voices, some with fascinating arrangements which almost delve into wyrdfolk. Normally, I might wonder if it were important to seek out new traditional albums like this, but when something sounds as timeless as this album, with just a dash of modern flourish, it is certainly worth seeking out.

After a prolonged absence, Jennifer Leonhardt (you may remember her from the acclaimed band The Pattycakes from the early aughts) has returned with a truly moving album. Songs My Mother Sang is a tribute to her late mother, and by her interpretations of these traditional tracks, I suspect they are songs Leonhardt was raised on and show her to be an honest musician with a rare depth to her singing.
