# Mexico City # Corrido Por Buddy # Palmyra # You Painted Yourself In # Fox In Its Hole # Your Big Hands # Sweet Loving Man # Love Henry # The Future # Enjoy Yourself’ On this, her third studio album, Jolie Holland ranges far and wide, adding to her unique take on folk and country and jazz that other distinctly American articulation, rock n roll. “I love rock and roll, but I think it was hard for me to trust its motives until now,â€? says Jolie Holland. No longer, for The Living And The Dead has some truly rowdy moments. Interspersed between the ephemeral repose that defined her earlier work are songs that are as musically immediate as they are emotionally complex. With guest appearances from M. Ward (My Morning Jacket, She & Him) and Marc Ribot (Elvis Costello, Tom Waits), The Living And The Dead is Holland’s most revealing and expansive work yet. “When she busts out a fiddle on “Sweet Loving Man,” a Fifties-style country tune about a velvet-tongued drifter, you can picture Kerouac nodding in approval” – Rolling Stone “Jolie Holland’s fourth album packs a full and commanding wallop. It’s her strongest effort yet, a mini-manifesto on how to weld varied American sounds together and also fucking rock at the same time“- Pitchfork
