Editors’ Notes

Texas-bred Jolie Holland still holds a confident grasp on the nuances of Americana-bred music, but her own singing and writing is far too varied and advanced to fall into a specific genre. She sings from a haunted place. Her vocals, raspy and intense, add shadows to songs such as “Tender Mirror” and “Wreckage.” Her band, the Grand Chandeliers, play a close-knit noir-blues that threatens to topple over on “Gold and Yellow.” Her foreboding fiddle fuels the passion of “June.” “The Devil’s Sake” is a high lonesome tune where Holland sounds like a stranger in her own body. Said to be inspired in part by Neil Young’s Zuma, Pint of Blood has sparse arrangements that suggest a storm is brewing. However, Holland can’t resist adding color — even if they are shades of grey. Closing the album with Texas songwriter Townes Van Zandt’s “Rex’s Blues” is the perfect cap to an album of such evocative desolation.

Customer Reviews

This is terrific!

This album is absolutely terrific. Incredibly, beautifully moody vocal, grabs you right from the beginning, and it just keeps on building up. She's always been good, and I have a special place in my heart reserved for Catalpa, but this one may have toppled it.

Heartbreaker

Jolie continues to amaze me, her lyrics are the soundtrack of my heart.

WOW

She is pure soul unlike any other.
