Margo Price (from the album Weakness E.P. available on Third Man Records)
It has been a little over one year since Margo Price released Midwest Farmers Daughter, her breakthrough album, in March 2016. She offers an appetizer before the main course of her follow-up, releasing a four-song E.P., Weakness. Margo went into Sam Phillips Recording Services in Memphis, Tennessee to record the songs. Weakness E.P. shows another side to Margo Price. A key ingredient to her music is in her ability to present choices as final decisions, embracing every step without judgment, willingly entering into each new chapter. That tune template continues on Weakness E.P. with a more world view, toasting other topics and holding politics and observations as high as she held the glass in her hand on her previous release.
The E.P. enters on donning masks, Margo admitting to ‘sometimes I’m Virginia Wolff, sometimes I’m James Dean’ on a wrangling Country rhythm while she owns where the whiskey and wine take her as “Weakness” stomps through a day in the life of Margo Price. Margo finally got a formal tour bus, dubbed Purple Haze, for her non-stop touring, and she brings a fan favorite from her live set into the Weakness E.P. with the finger-pointing admonitions of “Paper Cowboy”. Margo Price floats a dark melody under questions directed at humanity for “Just Like Love” as Weakness E.P. wishes “Good Luck (for Ben Eyestone)”.
