EDITORS’ NOTES

The singer-songwriter experiments with amalgamations of alt-country and post-punk in this striking original set. The jumpy, punky power pop of “Feel Right” makes for a tasty appetizer by letting you imagine Lindsey Buckingham fronting the Buzzcocks. “Come See Me” offers clear-eyed but clever power pop that echoes Nick Lowe, while Patterson uses her arsenal of vocal yelps and ticks to customize the sexy, lazy summer R&B of “No River.” On “Wantin’ Ain’t Getting” and “We Were Wild” she goes for something beyond country music—these are romantic cruising tunes for great Western sunsets.
