FILTER Grade: 81%

On her third album, it seems Shannon Whitworth has settled into a groove. Working with Bill Reynolds of Band of Horses and producer Seth Kauffman of Floating Action along with a full-time band has allowed the North Carolina native to create a bluesy blend of Americana indie rock that she can call her own. Combining up-tempo rockers (“You Are In Love”) with slower, lyrically driven songs (“Henry”), the singer sounds a bit like Kathleen Edwards and Mazzy Star. When added up, the sum is her best album to date.
