[RETRO AMERICANA] The husband-and-wife duo Shovels and Rope—Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst—offers up an earthy mishmash of sounds on its debut album, O’ Be Joyful, incorporating folk, country, rock and Americana together in an engaging, if slightly familiar way. Hearst’s scratchy, occasionally Janis Joplin-like vocals mirror the sometimes arid emotional and visual landscape of their songs, while Trent’s steady vocal presence keeps the tunes grounded when Hearst threatens to overpower the music every now and then. Sounding like a throwback to a bygone era, with talk of Bonnie and Clyde and lamenting someone leaving the South for New York City, the album yearns for a simpler time, and this duo makes you yearn right along with them.
