Caitlin Rose - Dead Flowers

Caitlin Rose is a country singer. Not your Shania Twain country, either. We're talking your proper twangy, Loretta Lynn country. As if to underline this, her songs deal with proper country subjects too: teenage pregnancy, drinking and - less conventionally - on 'Gorilla Man', monkey love. It's the sense of humor and tongue-in-cheek nature of songs like this last number that set Rose apart and ensures that she doesn't just descend into pastiche of the country classics. When she's not realising that she's an "ugly gorilla bride to be", she's delivering a sparse, pedal steel drenched cover of 'Dead Flowers'. If country's your bag, she should definitely be on your radar in 2010.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
