Reviews: Ksenia Mack ~ Letters from the Jalopy

Topic: Reviews

Artist: Ksenia Mack

CD: Letters from the Jalopy

Home: Boston, Massachusetts

Style: Folk

Quote: "...before you know it, the emotion is pouring all around you. You stand in it, letting it soak you to the bone because it feels so good."

By Erin West

In Ksenia Mack's song "Trainwrecks and Robberies," she says, "She's hard to resist, look at this..." You could say the same for Ksenia Mack herself. Her newest CD, Letters from the Jalopy, is like a summer storm. Mack's strong, honey-warm voice rolls through, bearing beautiful word droplets, and before you know it, the emotion is pouring all around you. You stand in it, letting it soak you to the bone because it feels so good.

Mack's playfulness, as heard in some lyrics, such as "God's asleep, better turn your TVs down," is balanced with the delicate nature of other lyrics, as heard in Meryl's Spring, "Meryl's in her spring. Flowers folding, beautiful unseen." This contradiction is the soul of what folk music really is, and Ksenia Mack's music is what folks should really listen to. Every song will find that part of your heart that needs to be heard, held, and poked fun at a little. Although Ksenia Mack's voice and music are as distinctive as her name, if you like the music of the Indigo Girls, Kathleen Edwards, and Alison Krauss, you surely won't be disappointed with this CD.
