Kim Lamothe: Philodendron

Kim Lamothe: Philodendron
Title: Philodendron
Label: CD Baby

'Girl and a guitar, it seems simple, so simple it's almost off-putting, but Kim Lamothe's new album is the bee's knees. The Tiverton resident's guitar riffs seem to take you to new, unexpected places, her voice is fresh and just a bit weather-worn and jaded, and her sound is pared down. The song construction is simple, just that unusual, intelligent and seductive guitar riff, and a bass, but it lends a tired, straggling quality to her lyrics. When she jams, as in 'Suspend,' her sound opens up and becomes exultant. She doesn't quite pull off 'Wood and Coping,' which feels just a bit incomplete, but the album as a whole is anything but; it feels passionate and gripping, country and rocking, sub dued and intimate. The pick of the litter.' ~Matt Keefer, Mercury Magazine, Newport, RI 'Lamothe is an intense emotive performer - Melissa Ethridge's fire and Chrissy Hinde's cool with an angry punk rock streak.' ~sean McCarthy 'kim lamothe's driving & intricate guitar rhythms are expertly matched with hard-hitting poetic lyrics, & a tough as nails attitude that can turn into a sweet yearning whisper, all in the blink of a tearless eye.' ~allysen callery.
