Margo Price (from the album Strays available on Loma Vista Recordings/Concord Music) (by Danny McCloskey)
A gathering storm of sound is an overture for Margo Price as she begins the song cycle on Strays, her latest release, with “Been to the Mountain”. The cut delivers a resume as it sets the standard for mystical on Strays. Margo Price continues to expand on her own career as well as curating a future for Roots music with Jonathan Wilson’s production of the album. Psychedelia moves freely throughout an album that stacks the adversity in life high as Margo Price’s words of inspiration point ways around, over, or through tough times. Strays spies a boy traveling down a “County Road” as Margo Price rides shotgun with a story that looks out the window at a nightmare world of changes. Dark clouds ride in on the low murmur of guitar notes and chords hovering over “Hell in the Heartland” as Margo Price cruises on a groove to announce her “Change of Heart” and hushes the melody to introduce “Lydia”.
Friends stop by for Strays, Margo Price asking to “Light Me Up” on a tune with Mike Campbell (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Mike Campbell & The Dirty Knobs) while Lucuis back with vocals on “Anytime You Call” and Sharon van Etten joins in to tune out the world with the “Radio”. Margo Price takes chances as she pushes out the borders of Roots music while she crafts her own sound. Strays ups the ante by blending and blurrying the lines between Country, Rock’n’Roll, and all forms of Roots music. A rubbery bend of sound and a solid beat are the foundation for Margo Price to turn back the clock with “Time Machine” as she exits Strays collecting lost dreams to bury in “Landfill”.
