Mascara Falls

Given that Heather Eatman was just the second performer ever signed to John Prine's Oh Boy imprint (the first being Prine himself, of course), it's safe to assume that her debut would closely follow the label's party line, delivering literate folk-pop characterized by considerable wit and poignancy. Mascara Falls doesn't disappoint

Overview

Given that Heather Eatman was just the second performer ever signed to John Prine's Oh Boy imprint (the first being Prine himself, of course), it's safe to assume that her debut would closely follow the label's party line, delivering literate folk-pop characterized by considerable wit and poignancy. Mascara Falls doesn't disappoint on those counts, but to peg her as little more than a distaff Prine wanna-be is to ignore the originality of Eatman's vision; songs like "Used Car," "Big Bass Drum" and "Miss Liberty" are Gothic character studies closer in spirit to the fiction of Flannery O'Connor than conventional folk music, complete with lyrics possessing a real flair for poetic physical imagery.
