The Last Town Chorus: Wire Waltz (Shock)

Why don't I step back here and let others tell you about the beguiling voice of Megan Hickey who is front and centre of this alt.country outfit, and whose lap steel playing is stellar? Here is a selection of quotes:

"She sings like an angel and plays lap steel like the Devil" -- Village Voice

"Hickey spellbinds listeners with her Gillian Welch-meets-Hope Sandoval voice" -- Paste

"Top her own songs off with a mesmerising reworking of David Bowie's Modern Love, and you have a thrilling collection" -- UK Daily Express

"If you've fallen for Cat Power, Megan might be a rival for your affections." -- UK The Sun.

Know enough now? A gem.
