DeMent, Iris - Infamous Angel Infamous Angel
Folk New - LP PLAIN 185 Plain
Sealed 2013 180gm Gatefold Original. “A Remarkable Debut, Infamous Angel Established Iris DeMent As One Of The Greatest Artists Of Her Generation. With Her Gift For Poignant, Confessional Songwriting And A Voice That Makes Raw Beauty Seem Like A Brand New Thing, She Invokes The Elemental Magic Of The Carter Family While Sounding As Fresh And Modern As John Prine (Who, Not Surprisingly, Is One Of Her Biggest Champions). DeMent's Concerns Are Largely Family And Tradition, And Many Of These Songs Deal With Memories Of Life And Love. Her Carter Influence Is Revealed In A Spirited Cover Of The Classic "Fifty Miles Of Elbow Room" As Well As "Mama's Opry," A Tribute To Her Mother, Who Also Sings Lead On "Higher Ground." These Are Wonderful, But DeMent's Greater Talent Is The Ballad, And She Delivers An Astonishing Handful, Including "When Love Was Young," "Sweet Forgiveness," And "After You're Gone," A Tribute To Her Dying Father That Is So Profoundly Affecting That One Is Rendered Nearly Helpless Listening To It. In The End, One Finishes This Record Somber But Refreshed By DeMent's Charming, Almost Naïve, Outlook On Life. That Naïveté Isn't An Act, Either -- DeMent Claims In Her Liner Notes That She's Never Thought Of Herself As A Great Singer. She Couldn't Be More Wrong, And Listeners Can Thank Heaven That She Changed Her Mind, For This Is An Album To Be Cherished And Played As Long As One Has Life To Listen.” – Jim Smith, AMG... more details
 
DeMent, Iris - My Life My Life
Folk New - LP PLAIN 186 Plain
Sealed 2013 180gm Gatefold Reissue. “Like Infamous Angel, My Life Opens On A Light Note, Which Is Hardly Adequate Preparation For The Emotional Turbulence That Follows. The Album Is Dedicated To Iris Dement's Father, Who Passed Away Prior To Its Release, And Although There Are Some Scattered Moments Of Joy Here, They Are Largely Absorbed By A Collection Of Songs Dealing With Primal Anguish And Longing. Dement's Writing Has Hardened A Bit, Producing Her Most Mature And Encompassing Song In "No Time To Cry," Which Serves As An Anchor For The Album's Rich Sentimentality And Is Also An Indication, In Its Social Obsessions, Of The Direction Her Next Album Would Take. Elsewhere, Dement's Songcraft Remains Exceptional But, As Before, The True Magic Is In Her Voice, Which Imbues Even The Simplest Songs With Perfect, Pure Emotion. Highlights Include Maybelle Carter's "Troublesome Waters," "Easy's Gettin' Harder Every Day," And A Terrific Rendition Of Lefty Frizzell's "Mom And Dad's Waltz." The Gorgeous Title Track Closes The Album, A Piano-Cello Duet That Is One Of Her Most Moving Performances. For Those Who Appreciate Dement's Rough-Hewn Voice, It Is Nearly Impossible To Exaggerate The Beauty Of These Recordings.” Jim Smith, AMG... more details
