Cool Dry Place

Exceptionally Good, Based on 3 Critics

The Line of Best Fit - 90
Based on rating 9/10

Despite the call of accessibility, the songs on Cool Dry Place actively resist convention. Kirby's melodies twist, jump, and writhe, trailing off in unexpected directions through shifting folk and indie pop soundscapes and forming a beguiling tension within her music. Elements of the style recall bits of Hop Along in her unconventional melodicism or Andy Shauf in her penchant for memorable detail.

Under The Radar - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Nashville by way of Central Texas songwriter Katy Kirby forces you to contemplate things you might not have otherwise noticed. Whether it be smoky boyfriends; the knowledge that lingerie sold at Target is not just underwear; or the "difference between weeds, and herbs, and flowers," Kirby marries up left field thoughts with particularly catchy hook-filled melodies. The nine perfectly penned songs of Cool Dry Place flash by in under half an hour, making the album custom made for engaging the button with the tail chasing arrows on your smart device.

Consequence of Sound
Opinion: Excellent

The Lowdown: Katy Kirby grew up in Texas, where she started singing in church and was heavily influenced for a long time by the evangelical pop that surrounded her. It's not immediately audible on her debut album, Cool Dry Place, which marks Kirby's first major entrance into the music world. One doesn't listen to this album and immediately think of church pop music, but part of what makes Cool Dry Place unique is the art and meaning it is able to illuminate within things that are not instantly apparent.
