Overview

Meet Me at the River plays like the mirror image to its predecessor, 2014's Bluebird. Where that record was sparse and heartbroken, Meet Me at the River is a rich, supple record, thanks in large part to Dawn Landes' decision to hire Fred Foster, a Nashville legend who produced classic recordings by Roy Orbison, Kris Kristofferson, and Willie Nelson. Landes isn't quite looking to re-create the lush sound of countrypolitan, but rather a vibe that blends the clean lines of '60s country with the eccentricity of Foster's work with Kristofferson. The stable of Music City pros gives the album an appealing snap and Landes is game to play by some of Nashville's rules, co-writing a few of the tunes, including the sly barroom two-step "Why They Name Whiskey After Men," covering an old Jimmie Driftwood tune ("What Is the Color of the Soul of Man"), and duetting with Bobby Bare on the good-natured "I Don't Dance." While she can wander into melancholic territory on occasion, even those numbers feel openhearted, and that warmth is what's so charming about Meet Me at the River. Landes is ready and willing to create her own spin on classic country, winding up with a generous and clever gem.
