New week, time to introduce "Record Of The Week"
From Richmond, Virginia we find Dorthia Cottrell, is most likely best known as the vocalist for the doom band WINDHAND. As solo artist Dorthia steps away from the doom of WINDHAND and moves towards an acoustic folk compilation of songs with a psychedelic twist, which showcases her voice in the most incredible way conceivable.
Cottrell’s self-titled debut solo album is a timeless story built around an acoustic guitar where her voice got to work for 100%. The album is really beautiful and thoughtful, a really hand crafted piece that should work in most houses around this glob. It's a pretty easy album to listen to, but it leaves a pretty big impression and emotion that will tear you apart, so you will spin it over and over again. The style is kinda traditional, as WINDHAND are. Just listen to tunes likes "Oak Grove" and "Gold" and you feel the darkness up on you. The dreamy "Orphan Bird" or the heart breaker "Maybe It's True" and you will sank into a landscape of strumming harmonies and Cottrell’s rich and soulful voice.
Her main musical influences are the blues, country and folk music.
Summary: Beautiful voice and a Guitar is all you need!
Today's tune "Cemetery Song" taken from her self-titled album, enjoy!
