Last month I idly mentioned to my brother Tim that I had heard a woman singing on the radio, and I just HAD TO get one of her recordings. "Oh, that must be Iris", he replied nonchalantly. He was right! And then some. He helped me find "Infamous Angel", and I am now thoroughly hooked on Iris Dement's evocative lyrics and exquisitely plaintive voice. Why only a "4" for this album? In the "talking" parts of some songs, "plaintive" yields occasionally to "whining", a blemish polished over in "My Life", the sequel album which Tim and I exchanged as gifts this Christmas week. I can't wait to hear her third release, also available through Barnes and Noble, "The Way I Should". I cannot fathom why this brilliant performer has not become a household name. Perhaps Iris likes it this way.
