No Way There From Here


Laura Cantrell


Amoeba Review

01/27/2014

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Laura Cantrell, save for a Burt Bacharach cover EP here and Kitty Wells cover LP there. Her sound, firmly rooted in classic country, sounds as great as ever on No Way There From Here, drawing on heroines like Loretta Lynn and Emmylou Harris for a set of intimate country-folk. “Letter She Sent” is a classic sorrowful country ballad with lovely backup vocals, while the title track finds Cantrell backed by subtle strings in a gorgeously wallowing song—“Each day when I awaken, the dream that seems so clear, disappears,” she sings devastatingly. Though No Way There From Here is loaded with sad, observational tunes, the record feels thoroughly true and lived in. On “Barely Said a Thing,” Cantrell details a couple’s awkward missed connections in a way that makes you laugh in recognition, even if it’s bittersweet. It’s the kind of music that is all too rare in 2014, something that makes you put your phone down and tune into the life’s passing details.
