Dorthia Cottrell: s/t LP

Dorthia

“Paved in bone, blessed are these highways that carry us home…”

Is this the record I have been waiting for all my life, is this the one? I surely don’t know but we are close, so close.. I came across with this album while surfing trough BandCamp and it was love at first “sight”. Later I discovered that I already have heard her voice numerous times while spinning Windhand’s latest album.. Well, sometimes it goes like this. Awesome solo album. And even though the whole album is pure gold from the first note to the last, there are these two tracks I’m in love; “Orphan Bird” and Townes Van Zandt cover “Rake”. Recommended album, available from Forcefield Records (I was tired for waiting some European distributor getting this one so I ordered my copy directly from the source).

“I used to wake and run with the moon
I lived like a rake and a young man
I covered my lovers with flowers and wounds
My laughter, the Devil would frighten…”
