Dirty telecaster tones have started becoming more prominent in certain singer-songwriter circles, highlighted by acts like Margaret Glaspy. On “Yesterday’s Clothes”, Carla Geneve becomes part of that list, embracing the kind of sharp-knife narratives that have served other contemporaries well. Impressively, Geneve also carves out enough unique space to not be seen as a retread or risk being overlooked: this is razor-sharp writing, composition, and performance. A bluesy, folk-driven mid-tempo rocker, “Yesterday’s Clothes” is ready-made for any long drive mix tape, packing an open-road punch as it gives into its quietly propulsive nature. A welcome and welcoming gem from an artist worth watching.
