Asking for Flowers (Explicit)
Released: Mar 2008
Label: New Rounder
Like fellow Canadian Sarah Harmer, Kathleen Edwards is skilled at negotiating the inherent contrasts of alt country, using traditional twang as effectively as spacey atmospherics, and employing her crystalline voice on badmouthing songs like "The Cheapest Key" and "Sure As Sh*t" for biting results. Her smartest writing comes with the tale of two fleeing lovers in "Oil Man's War," a bold political statement that's made with welcomed subtlety.
