8
Indestructible Machine
Critical Mass
Release Date: September 13, 2011
Label: Bloodshot

by Marc Hogan

Screeching guitar and car-chase banjo open the remarkable Bloodshot debut from this 21-year-old Ohio hellion. That pairing of punk force and country grit is nothing new, but Lydia Loveless makes it her own through the strength of a blazing voice, a fully formed persona, and bluntly crafty songwriting. She's been playing in bars since her early teens, and it shows on rowdy tunes about cheating hearts, dirty minds, and lots and lots of booze. "I talk so much shit I forget who I'm talking to," she confides. But you'll remember.
