Product Overview

This 12-track song-cycle is a crossroads where haunting meets joyful; a voice from the heavens singing stories of the underworld. Holland's songs rise and fall like heavy eyelids and convey the peace between asleep and awake, creating a special place for you to be. Sounds from past and present-tense waltz together to a never ending melody that flickers between folk, jazz, blues, and pop. Holland's lyrics conjure characters and situations one might find in the surrealistic celluloid of Jim Jarmusch. As with all good dreams, there is an anything-goes spirit leading the way. Its this level of bravado that prompted All Music Guide to describe Holland's sound as "a listening experience that is singular, startling, and soulful.

Album Notes and Credits
SPRINGTIME CAN KILL YOU is the follow-up to ex-Be Good Tanya singer-songwriter Jolie Holland's critically acclaimed 2004 release ESCONDIDA. Haunting, gorgeous, and meticulously crafted, the album shows Holland maturing by leaps and bounds as a writer and performer.
Holland draws from the full spectrum of Americana, weaving threads of country, folk, blues, and gospel into a shimmering tapestry that is uniquely her own. The album is intimate and familiar, yet fresh and surprising; the credit for its impact goes almost entirely to Holland's compositions, which float like dreams dreamt in the depth of a summer night. Every aspect of SPRINGTIME--from the understated arrangements to Holland's charmingly idiosyncratic vocals--rings true.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.99) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Holland's voice is a thing of wonder -- languorous but with a sweetness that makes even the saddest sentiments comforting."
Spin (p.84) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "With cockeyed portraits of bruised romance, she sustains deep suspense thanks to languid enunciations of every stretched vowel."
Entertainment Weekly (p.83) - "[H]er band breathes along like a ventilator with brushed drums, pump organ, lap steel and horns. Proof folk music shouldn't just conjure the past."
No Depression (p.135) - "[T]he country-tinged "Moonshiner' is shot through with bittersweet slide guitar. The title track, despite its fatal implications, is a light and lively jazz tune, propelled by flittering cymbals, quick strums, and an air of barely suppressed agitation."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.108) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[S]he always offsets hillbilly hangdog victimhood with a raised eyebrow of humour or some strangely uplifting musical moment."
