Po' Girl

Album Title: Home To You
Release Date: February 13, 2007

Genre: Folk
Like label-mates the Be Good Tanyas, Po’ Girl have got the roots-bluegrass angle down to a fine art, with banjo and slide and fiddle and clarinet wending their way through their tracks. Plus you can’t help but groove along as you listen to Home To You, with the girls’ smooth, fluid vocals leading the way. As the title of Home To You might suggest, the album is all about home and the lack thereof. The theme of the record (Po’ Girl’s third) was born out of a deep understanding of what it means to be far from home. You see, the members of the Vancouver-based quartet have spent a great deal of time on the road traveling, touring their last two albums. And while it’s clear the members of Po’ Girl have had enough homesickness to last a decade, it’s impossible to argue that being far away from home hasn’t helped them make a tragic beauty of a record. There goes that double-edged knife thing again.

(For the record, most unexpected moment of the entire album: the guest rapper on “9 Hrs to Go.” Yep, a rapper. On a roots album.)
