Maximizing that powerful female energy is Tennessee-raised lead singer Rachael Price, whose dusky, highly resonant vocals, reminiscent of Dusty Springfield, ground the album with a warm virtuosity. It also doesn't hurt that Kearney, guitarist Mike Olson, drummer Mike Calabrese, and touring keyboardist Akie Bermiss frame her in earthy, organic arrangements with a tactile, live-in-the-studio feel. To achieve that vibe, the bandmembers helmed the sessions themselves in Nashville with longtime friend and engineer Dan Knobler. It's a welcome shift from the somewhat buttoned-up, '60s Wall of Sound approach of 2016's Side Pony, and brings to mind the windblown '70s albums of artists like Fleetwood Mac, Rufus & Chaka Khan, Minnie Riperton, and others. -Allmusic
