“Since Truckstop Honeymoon’s inception a decade ago, Katie Euliss has written some dandies that have won the admiration of her contemporaries. Her ninetrack solo debut is a better, unencumbered songwriting showcase since the duo’s other half, Mike West, only plays a sideman’s role on several stringed instruments. Interestingly, the arrangements blend the couple’s typical acoustic approach with a searing indie rock feel for feedback and distortion (“Bad News”), not to mention punk, pop, swing and jangly Byrds influences. Euliss’ songs seem autobiographical—a life’s scrapbook of adventures and picturesque characters met along the way. Leaving home at an early age marks a pivotal chapter, and without it none of this would be told now. Some of it is wistful, questioning life but with acceptance (“Waiting for It to Rain”), some of it flames with rage (“Should’ve Burned It Down”).”
