Yola- Stand For Myself review


My review of Yola’s latest is up over at Country Standard Time: https://www.countrystandardtime.com/d/cdreview.asp?xid=7391

There is a lot more that I should have said about this incredible recording, one that takes country music and flips it into something completely new, but space limitations were a challenge. Stand For Myself doesn’t ‘sound’ like country music- not even as much as her previous album- but it ‘feels’ like country music filtered through a different lens and a lifetime of perspective.

Illustration: my own composition based on the ‘neon pink’ vinyl version purchased subsequent to writing the review.
