This is pretty good, I think. Wasn’t terribly enamoured by the last thing I heard from Karen Elson, the Mildred & The Mice seven-inch, but this is nice, faintly menaced country pop, with some kinship, perhaps, to Neko Case.

Looks like a full album’s on the way, produced by Jack White, presumably employing that somewhat underused band. Decent run for Third Man at the moment, after the Smoke Fairies, Wanda Jackson and Black Belles singles.
