Hip-swaying magic weaves itself through her fingers and floats in her voice. SJ Tucker returns to eager ears with a new 11 song album full of fairytales and ghosts. Her sultry music brims with love in its own existence, dabbling in folk, jazz, and blues. Stolen Season starts out with the smooth “Black Swan Blues,” invoking a tempest and roiling power. The following songs are nostalgic and sweet for the south, but my favorite lyrics are from “Girl Into Devil” to “Stolen Season.” The fairytale poetry is empowering with a touch of darkness, narrated by wicked girls saving themselves.
