“No Depression” has just given a glowing review to Samantha Crain’s new album, “Under Brand and Thorn and Tree”.
No Depression writes: “Last time around, on 2013’s Kid Face, Crain told me in an interview that she was making a concerted effort to move away from fiction elements and closer to autobiography in her songs. While that disc was astute and stirring, it was nothing compared to its follow-up, this year’s Under Branch and Thorn and Tree. (out now on Ramseur Records). This time, Crain has not only landed on truth-telling that goes for the jugular, but she’s done so as a furthering of the plight of her people. Reportedly, the album was inspired by a prominent Oklahoman who made a rather public display of anti-indigenous sentiment.”
