"Automechanic" by Jenny O. is a folky Singer-Songwriter album with a southern edge.
The thing that this record really has in spades is dynamic. Songs flow seamlessly together, yet slight influence changes can be heard in each new track... the same basic songwriting backbone is there, but a smattering of mood and style shifts keep things quite interesting.
Songs like "Good Love" introduce a new sound into the mix 7 tracks in- dare I say funk. Rockabilly guitar riffs splunk up in the background while a groovy slap guitar (high bass?) leads the piece into new territories.
The track "Dope Van Gogh" has a sickly sweet and innocent instrumental quality for it that can be described as a very mellow and laid back folk- yet the lyrics are a thinly veiled discussion on addictions and the surrounding heavy themes that go along with the subject.
"Hey Nieghbor" borders between honky tonk and ragtime- infusing the record with just the right amount of unbridled quirky fun.
