Red Velvet Car

by Heart
Red Velvet Car by Heart
Released: Aug 2010
Label: Legacy Recordings
As on 2004's sadly slept-on Jupiters Darling, the Wilson sisters hark much closer here to their unicorn-rock '70s than their pop-schlock '80s. Their patented Airplane-Zeppelin hybrid remains unrivaled, and, for a surprising mid-set stretch, near unstoppable: Seattle sea chantey "Queen City"; pulsing pastoral "Hey You"; hard-swung shuffle "Wheels"; witchy-woman rave-up "Saffronia's Mark"; grunge dirge "Death Valley"; green-thumb beauty "Sunflower." If too many metaphors rely on inclement Northwest weather, the folk colorings -- mandolin, dobro, banjo -- make the rain ring true.
