Starlet proves folk belongs to young 'uns too
Folk these days are sticklers for authenticity if you dabble in genres that had their heyday before you were born â€“ just ask [a]Laura Marling[/a]. Some might quibble about Nashville native [a]Caitlin Rose[/a]â€™s debut, loath to believe that this gorgeous, bright collection was written by a 22-year-old, but theyâ€™d be wrong to. Indebted to the glorious hymnal quality of [a]Linda Ronstadt[/a] and perky heartbreak chroniclers [a]The Shangri-Las[/a], itâ€™s laced with quirky observations rather than smoochy country platitudes. Similarities to [a]She & Him[/a] abound, but minus Zooeyâ€™s showtune splendour, the vulnerability in Caitlinâ€™s voice chimes as true as the clink of a quarter in an old jukebox.
