This is more purely ‘alt. country’ (whatever that amorphous term actually really means) than that Rose Cousins album I posted last night. I’m not really much of a country music fan but Lindi has a helluva voice. From my point of view Polaris jurors tend to get it confused and think a deserving Polaris Music Prize album winner has to be ‘progressive’ sounding or boundary breaking. I take the prize organizers at their word and think an album just has to sound insanely great. By that measure, while Little Red Boots might sound like a niche or genre record, I’d say it more than qualifies for serious consideration. Does that mean it will be a contender though? I’d say it’s tough to call. Ya dig that sampler above though? Then hit the jump for the full album via RDIO (snippets only for non-RDIO subscribers).
