Like the Covers Themselves, Zoe Muth's Old Gold Is Heartfelt and Lived In

Old Gold

The words Old Gold may conjure images of blue collar smokers and vintage cigarette commercials, but the title of Zoe Muth's third offering actually refers to the classic folk covers contained within. Unlike the singer's first two full length releases, rich with uptempo honky tonk sounds and her smooth, lilting croon, this 6-track mini-album is far more mellow, shelving Muth's spritely country style for a folkier take on artists like John Prine, Anna McGarrigle, and Dock Boggs. Like Bill Cantrell's "I've Been Deceived" and Jerry Ragavoy's "Get It While You Can," "Walking The Line," the one song penned by Muth herself, is a little world weary like the rest of them, but her soulful, songbird pipes, as always, are clear and unwavering; with the steady backing of The High Rollers, Old Gold is another keeper.

Check out Muth's cover of McGarrigle's "Heart Like A Wheel" here:
