What has gotten into me? A change in the weather and all at once I'm into swampy country blues. From North Carolina or thereabouts, it's Trailer Bride with their third album 'High Seas'. It came with the mail just as the temparature was starting to rise .I managed to lean over while listening to it and then I read on the CD sleeve that 'High Seas' is meant to be heard over the headphones while staring at cypress trees. I won't be able to live up to that but can prepare for the next best thing. Get me a bottle of JD. Trailer Bride delivers a genuinely great collection of heartsung country and western ballads, which thrive on melancholy. They also offer much more than one-dimensional Tennessee popularism. On 'High Seas' you'll also find twisted rock'n roll, which is campy yet crampy. 'High Seas' doesn't have a stand out track, but rides the high tide on a flood of excellence. Compositions are heartfelt, and slightly under produced. A banjo workis all of the time. When the itchy twang accompanies singer Melissa Swingle, no matter how spooky the sound, 'High Seas' become uplifting. She has one of the most distinctive voices in C&W apart from Pauline Frazer, putting the Big O back into Country & Western. A star in Birmingham and Houston already, Melissa's about to win over the entire globe with classics like 'Ghost of Mae West'.
