Autumn Nicole Wetli
“I Still Go On”
Calling out from the shadows, Autumn Nicole Wetli's done-wrong heart sinks about as low as a girl can get on these two tunes of heartbreak and abandonment, though you'd never know it from how beautiful the sounds are. "I Still Go On" romps drunkenly across the bar room floor, looking back on a decietful lover with the kind of clarity that only comes after seven or eight drinks, while "It's Over" slows down the pace for a glimmering, sorrowful dirge evoking some heavy Mazzy Star vibes and featuring the ghostly backing vocals of Raw Honey songwriter Maggie Hopp. A punk at her core, Autumn's rough-edged songs get smoothed out only so much in these country-tinged jams.
