The Patti Fiasco
On the title track of the Patti Fiasco's Small Town Lights, which also serves as the album's opener, the Fort Collins-based quintet starts off fairly tame, with strumming acoustic guitars and a slide resonator guitar that sounds almost like a pedal steel. It's a bit twangy at first, but in no time, the rest of the band kicks in and the tune gains considerable momentum. The rest of the cuts on this ten-track disc, the followup to the act's 2011 self-titled full-length, show that the Patti Fiasco is equally at home with rock, country and Americana, not to mention blending the three. Alysia Kraft, a righteous frontwoman throughout, delivers vocals as pure and clean as they are powerful.
