Blasting twin barrels of Americana noir and southern-gothic songwriting, India Ramey fires on all cylinders with her new long player, Snake Handler.

Pentecostal churches, broken households, crooked family trees, forgotten pockets of the Deep South, and domestic violence all fill the album’s ten songs, whose autobiographical lyrics pull from Ramey’s experience as a young girl in rural Georgia. Her family home was a violent one, the product of an addicted father who flew into an abusive rage whenever his vices took control. Despite being the youngest of three children, Ramey grew up quickly, robbed of a typical childhood by her unpredictable home life.

She recollects those early years in The Baby. Listen to it and the record’s title track below.
