Mother by Natalie Maines
Released: May 2013
Label: Columbia
Rid of her fiddle-champion, Dobro-playing bandmates and her Uncle Tupelo producing father, Natalie Maines' post-Dixie Chicks debut rocks harder than even the hardest of her old band's hits. Where "Trained" finds Maines and producer/songwriter Ben Harper attempting muscular blues rock in the style of Jack White, "Without You" is a Pearl Jam cover that wouldn't have sounded out of place on Radiohead's The Bends. Maines, however, sounds best on tracks like "Free Life," an almost existential number concerning what to do after finding the wide open spaces she and the Chicks once sought.
