Published December 08, 2005.Lori McKennaBittertown(True North)Could this be New England's answer to Lucinda Williams? If family life delayed McKenna's blossoming, a willingness to lay it all out seriously stokes her songs. Pinched old-timey vocals give her battles and worries an eternal quality. With such a crack band, tales of small-town decay become starkly compelling.Doug Taylorcategories: Best of the year (2005)
