A GREAT review of Rae Fitzgerald:

“Fitzgerald peers behind the fleshy curtain of our humanity into the most neglected corners of the soul, proving she belongs in the company of dime-store prophets, shoe-leather street preachers and blue-collar soothsayers.

The record is a spiritual one, even if Fitzgerald sounds agnostic about religion — it’s stocked with hymns to heartbreak and gospel songs about flawed and failed saviors. Never does she sin by ceding her lovelorn lyrics to tempting, well-worn clichés; instead, each and every phrase is a balanced portrait of fragility and fortitude.

Fitzgerald’s crackerjack band, whose principals include Ian Vardell, Josh Chittum, Phylshawn Johnson and Wil Reeves, beautifully paints her poetry. The collective brings genuine warmth to sentiments that are often weathered and wind-burnt, accentuating the deep shadows and glints of light inherent in her words.

By and large, these songs exist at the intersection of folk and indie rock, marked by shuffling rhythms, rocksteady grooves and dynamic slow-burns. Aesthetically, Fitzgerald comes across as a more citified Gillian Welch or like-minded friend to Sharon Van Etten. She and her band exert a sense of cool control, altering the mood at a moment’s notice and coaxing out all the ambience and atmosphere each song can handle. Each arrangement suitably frames Fitzgerald’s voice.

And oh, that voice. It’s a robust and radiant instrument, worldly and vulnerable all at once, each little fork and bend in a melody like a journey unto itself. Fitzgerald’s is a voice crying out for genuine intimacy and connection in a wilderness of detachment and clean-conscience disentanglements. It’s that deep-seated cry — and her band’s ability to amplify it — that makes [her album] “Quitting the Machine” a real reservoir of sound and soul.”
