A lot has changed in singer/songwriter Eilen Jewell’s life since her previous studio set four years ago. She moved from Boston back to her Idaho home (alluded to in this album’s title) and gave birth to a baby girl. Life deviations of this magnitude are practically guaranteed to reflect in Jewell’s songwriting and sure enough there is a slightly less frisky, more reflective slant to her approach over these eleven tracks. As usual, Jewell keeps her tunes tightly compressed with everything under four minutes and some even less than three. The twilight star lit sky with her silhouette featured on the disc’s cover reflects the more laid back, bucolic, introspective groove she follows here. So, even though there are no peppy, rollicking “Shakin’ All Over” covers, this slightly restrained, beautifully crafted and enticing Eilen Jewell disc proves she remains one of American’s most intriguing, creative and idiosyncratic voices.
