Brand new album from Nashville-born, New York-based Laura Cantrell whose debut album was the late John Peel's "favourite album of the last 10 years – and possibly my life". Kitty Wells Dresses is Laura's 4th full-length studio album, following on from "Not The Tremblin' Kind" (Spit & Polish), "When The Roses Bloom Again" (Spit & Polish) and "Humming By The Flowered Vine" (Matador). Recorded in Nashville and New York, it is a beautiful celebration of the music of The Queen Of Country Music and is Laura Cantrell's most overtly country album to date. Laura says "I've been a Kitty Wells fan since childhood ... I always responded to the fundamental feeling in Wells' singing, her way of sounding both emotional and restrained at once, as if she were hanging on despite life's many hardships."
