Download: Wonky Tonk – Montague Road

unnamed-5As brash and vulnerable as Lydia Loveless, her musical compatriot from across the Ohio River, Kentucky’s Wonky Tonk may bear more of an indie polish on her debut single “Montague Road” but she’ll just as quickly spit in your eye as kiss your cheek.

Stuff We Leave Behind, the freshman LP from one Jasmine Lorraine Poole, is dotted by locales in Kentucky’s border states, the western reaches of the US and a Nordic country. From the mountain a cappella of “I’ll Turn My Radio On” to the fuzzed-out torch song of “One for the Juke,” Wonky Tonk mixes country touchstones with chamber pop, bestowing a Keroucian restlessness to each of the album’s songs, none more so than “Montague Road” which features a contribution from Bucket Full of Nails alumnus Mark Utley of Cincinnati’s Bulletville.
