Welcome to Twangsville! Today’s special: Angela Desveaux, whose name I keep misspelling because I seem to have severe French-typing disability. As the trend of fabulous Canadian country singers continues, Ms. Desveaux, who hails from Montreal, has released her first album on the Thrill Jockey label, entitled “Wandering Eyes.”
So here’s the thing. If you like Haley Bonar, you’ll like Angela Desveaux. If you liked Justin Rutledge, Amy Millan, or any of the other fabulous Canadian country singers, you’ll like Angela Desveaux. Like Rutledge, Desveaux walks the line of being almost too country, but still manages (in my opinion) to stay in the alt-country pastures and not jump the fence into full-on Faith Hill territory. It’s a good solid sound — not new by any means, but if you’re like me and you have a guilty pleasure and that pleasure is alt-country, then just have a listen and then pop over to iTunes or Emusic and go crazy.
