India Ramey – Snake Handler

Posted: October 11, 2017 in Americana, Country, Folk, Music

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.

There isn’t much that sounds better than the gorgeous harmonies created by Swedish sisters First Aid Kit.

More From Joseph Childress

We’ve already posted a couple of tracks from Joseph Childress’ new self-titled record, and Leaving The Barren Ground is the latest, and final, song to be shared from it ahead of its official release on the 6th October.

It is another really fine example of his organic songwriting and pithy Americana with just the right amount of gentle twang. It is easy to how the comparisons to such luminaries as Townes Van Zandt and Dylan have arisen.

Stream it here.
