MAKE IT ALL RIGHT
Superb acid folk from Leonda ...
Sounds like she has been eating peyote in the desert.
Featuring superb backing from Skip Prokop, Adam Mitchell and Brad Campbell (of psych favourites The Paupers), as well as long-time Muddy Waters sideman Sammy Lawhorn, Ted Irwin (renowned for his early collaborations with Jake Holmes) and Brad Cambell (The Paupers, Janis Joplin),
...it features haunting acoustic tunes and Native American-themed lyrics that are sure to appeal to fans of female hippie rock.
Sad-tinged folk from Leonda -- an artist who appears to have some Native American affiliations, at least from the themes of the songs -- and who's working here with backings that are well-done, but never too professionally polished!
The Paupers help out with a good deal of the instrumentation -- and backings are usually gentle, but with some slightly complicated phrasings in ways that almost remind us a bit of Tim Hardin at times, but which come off quite differently given Leonda's slightly bluesy vocal approach."
Leonda - Blue Diamond In Platinum Setting
Bluesy women with a voice like this make me... vibrate.
