Returning to original material after the 2017 covers album Down Hearted Blues, Eilen Jewell is unusually engaged with the modern world on Gypsy. This doesn't mean the singer/songwriter is abandoning her Americana for country-pop. With its smoldering, swampy groove and sawing fiddles, the opening "Crawl" makes it clear that Jewell continues to mine and fuse all aspects of American roots music; she's as comfortable with country as she is soul.
