Chicago insurgent country label Bloodshot may be grooming Lydia Loveless to pick up where twang angels Kelly Hogan and Neko Case left off, but the young Columbus, Ohio, native is a harder country singer than either. She takes a no-frills, back-to-the-barroom approach that recalls the early alt-country sound — all pedal steel, fiddle and Telecaster — of Robbie Fulks. With a shivering vibrato and songs that split the difference between sincerity and over-the-top satire ("My daddy shot the only man I ever loved," she sings on the original song "The Only Man," and then proceeds to set off a family bloodbath), Loveless isn't afraid to indulge in the archetypes of country music — or to drink you under the table as another Loretta Lynn song spins on a honky-tonk jukebox she knows inside and out.
