2014 Honorable Mention Pick 9

Lindi Ortega: Tin Star (Last Gang, 2013).

A straightforward, energetic country rock record.  Ortega’s voice is sweet but she can also stand her own in front of the band when they’re rockin’ pretty hard.

The production on the record is straightforward and transparent, the band is pretty smokin’ and Ortega does a great job as a front woman.

The songs are solid, but if they had been more unique lyrically or more memborable in another way this record would easily have made it onto the best of 2014 list.
