Direct Current RADAR previews “Get Up”

“For her new album Reckless Skyline (January 20), Canty turned to producer, noted songwriter and guitarist Jeffrey Foucault and a razor sharp band of veteran studio players.”

“The collaboration led Canty into a slightly grittier, more electric territory as two-step ballads and delicate folk songs made room for some slightly rowdier musical company. Not surprisingly, Canty is looking forward to bringing her backing players on the road with her in January: “There’s nothing like the energy of a great live band and this one is so good it would be a pity to keep all the fun behind closed studio doors”

Leicester Bangs Reviews Golden Hour

“A graceful, sophisticated recording, with elements of dark Americana and folk flirting with a mature almost-but-not-quite jazz ambience – almost as if Daniel Lanois were manning the desk.”

“Still Here” provides the perfect launch, its haunting mood, lyrical prowess, melody and barbs combine beautifully – it’s late night listening for nights you wish would never end. “Shoot Trouble” instills Southern Gothic edginess.”

“Her band get it just right throughout “Golden Hour” adding layers of atmosphere and dusky musical tension rather than showy solos.”
