Oh Susanna’s first two albums displayed Suzie Ungerleider’s diversity. Johnstown (1999) was a stark piece of folk-blues storytelling, while Sleepy Little Sailor (2001) was a lyrical and dreamy alt.country record. Her third album is different again with a roots-rock flavour that on songs such as “Cain Is Rising”, “Little White Lie” and “Unknown Land” finds her sounding like Neko Case backed by Crazy Horse. A ripping take of “I’ll Keep It With Mine”, which wouldn’t have been out of place on Uncut’s compilation of Dylan covers (Take 61, June 2002), is the icing on the cake.
