Audra Mae and the Almighty Sound “Audra Mae and the Almighty Sound”

I guess before she was a solo artist but now is leading a band. I’m not clear as to whether her songwriting is getting any better, though. “My Friend the Devil” is a catchy tune, but the lyrics are a little too cliched for me. That I even noticed the lyrics is not a good sign.
“Annie Get Your Gun” is better, especially if like slower songs. If you want a waltz, “Old Italian Love Song” is as easy as one-two-three. This track is slightly more melodic as well, evoking thoughts of Neko Case.
The slightest of rockabilly can be heard in “Climb.” There are a lot of different styles on this album, perhaps to see what sounds the Almighty Sounda are capable of. The last track is “Two Melodies.” It’s an acoustic, slow song, and the songwriting here does get a little better. It’s all coming together for Audra Mae, et al. The next album should be the one.
