Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

CARRIE RODRIGUEZ

LIVE IN LOUISVILLE

2009-11-09

This live recording was made in 2007 when Carrie Rodriguez was opening for Lucinda Williams. It is easy to hear after one listen how this Austin Texas fiddler who has spent much of her recording career with partner Chip Taylor has moved into a more edgy side of the Alt-Country world. The Tracks “I Don’t Want to Play House Anymore” and “You Won’t Be Satisfied That Way” have a Lucinda feel to them or Patty Griffin during the days of Red. Carrie also releases her sexual energy on “50’s French Movie” a track that reminded me of Lucinda Williams song “Righteously” The tracks“ Mask Of Moses” which begins slow and works up to a full steam boil and “Never Gonna Be Your Bride” demonstrates that this country gal from Austin sure knows how to rock. Carrie’s last Studio CD’s have brought attention to her as a solo artist and this live recording should solidify the talents of this underrated performer. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
