Naomi : Be my lover

Gruff, bluesy rocker with a shit-kicking vocal sounding as if Naomi has been gargling dust from the courtyard of Texas state penitentiary.

Gruff, bluesy rocker with a shit-kicking vocal sounding as if Naomi has been gargling dust from the courtyard of Texas state penitentiary. Add a clued-up rootsy backing track with slashing Dixie violins and the caustic thrum of bucolic acoustic guitars,

and

you've got the kind of gravelly grind which will cling to drivetime national radio like glue. Not a million miles from the similar

gumbo

peddled by Maria McKee. It ain't gonna break anyone's heart, but it won't have you flipping stations either.
