-She Ain't Me-
CD Review - By Bob Silvestri
Carrie Rodriguez's second CD titled She Ain't Me finds the eclectic singer songwriter branching out on both her songwriting and musical chops. She shares songwriting duties on a few tracks with Gary Louris from the Jayhawks, Jim Boquist from Son Volt and Mary Gauthier among others. More subdued than her first disc Rodriguez seems to have found a style that suits her here as she matures as an artist. Tracks of note include the Rodriguez/Louris penned "Infinite Night" and "El Salvador" with Louris helping out on vocals, "Absence" co written with Gauthier who also sings on the cut and "Mask of Moses" which features Lucinda Williams on vocals. The title cut "She Ain't Me" along with "Rag Doll" and "Can't Cry Enough" shine here as well. Check out www.carrierodriguez.com for more info.
