Brandy Clark (from the album Brandy Clark available on Warner Records) (by Danny McCloskey)
Taking Daddy for a swim is the subject for “Not Enough Rocks” when Brandy Clark sings of feeling the residual pain of past offenses long after the cause has been left at the bottom of the river. The tune uses biting guitar riffing from Derek Trucks, his venomous leads matching the sharp edges in the words. It is the opening cut on the recent self-titled release from Brandy Clark. Produced by Brandi Carlile, the new album presents each cut as glimmering gems. Brandy Clark is polished for the song, not for the sonic quality. Producer Brandi joins songwriter Brandy to address a shared awkwardness as “Dear Insecurity”, the music rising and falling in tender moments and dramatic flairs.
Brandy Clark feels the album is a musical return for her. It relies on the rawness in both her words and music to make its point. The playing barely rises above a whisper in “Up Above the Clouds (Cecilia’s Song)” while freckled notes are scattered to introduce a true character with “She Smoked in the House” as “Buried” hushes to reveal its reveries. Joined in the studio by Lucius on the jazz-affected rhythmic patter in “Tell Her You Don’t Love Her” , Brandy Clark shares the story in “Best One” with a Bluesy drawl as she drives the wheels of “Northwest” on a Cosmic Country groove and tenderly encourages “Take Mine” on the album closer.
