Overview

In the self-penned press release accompanying her superb second album, Terrible Hostess, Carolyn Mark self-deprecatingly dubs herself "The Other Girl in the Corn Sisters", and while it's true she's never earned the notice or acclaim justly heaped on duet partner Neko Case, it's time people started paying closer attention. Mark's songs are boozy and brassy, and her voice suggests a tough, salt-of-the-earth Natalie Merchant -- moving deftly from the Red Bull-and-vodka bluegrass of the opening "Fuzzy Slippers" to the juke-joint torch balladry of "Inevitable," Terrible Hostess is both rooted in traditional country & western and a repudiation thereof, smarter and saucier than anything to come out of Nashville in eons.

Witty, smart, original. Opened it up, and listened to it 3 times through! I stumbled across Carolyn by purchasing a twisted but hilarious children's CD called 'The Bottle Let Me Down: Songs for Bumpy Wagon Rides' (not just for kids: check it out!). Ms Mark's music is a wonderful and entertaining departure from the vapid, self-important drivel coming out of ther music industry nowadays. Kudos!
