EDITORS’ NOTES

Ortega’s unique country style embraces uncommon elements—Ennio Morricone’s spaghetti-western soundtracks, dark Angelo Badalamenti moments, torch singers, vintage rock, Spanish lyrics (Ortega, a Toronto native, is half Mexican). “Til My Dyin’ Day” would blow away a Grand Ole Opry stage with its brushed snares, steel guitar, and subdued vocal. “You Ain’t Foolin’ Me” and “The Comeback Kid” stomp with feral rock ‘n’ roll fervor. Her voice is angelic throughout, whether in English or Spanish (“Pablo,” “Gracias a la Vida”).

The Liberation of Liberty

This concept album from Linda Ortega will entranced you from the opening track song “Afraid of the dark.” Lindi sings of a wild Palomino and of a past lover whom she doesn’t want to come close to her. “Till my dyin’ day” ensnares a gloomy sad love song of past regrets and a significant lost so strong that echos till the very last verse. Through the second act of the album much of the likes of a Quentin Tarantino film. The “Comeback Kid” is a song that belongs on the ending credit a Kill Bill films. In the last act it is transformed from darkness to light. You will feel a sense of victory and of belonging to this world that Lindi has made up. Escapism is important to ones being. It allows us to explore other parts of mind and soul. Thank you Lindi Ortega for this album. Hope to hear more in the future.
