REVIEW: Della Mae: This World Oft Can Be (2013)

You can read my review of Della Mae’s debut LP for Rounder, This World Oft Can Be, at PopMatters.  To give you a taste:

“There’s nary a clinker to be found here, and the whole thing maintains a consistency of quality that would be the envy of many established artists. What’s most impressive, though, is not that Della Mae has succeeded, but that the band has done it and made it seem so easy. There are no signs of the self-consciousness and strain that mar so many roots-based releases. Instead, This World Oft Can Be is the rarest kind of success: the past grounds it, sure, but so too does the present, and the result illuminates both.”
