Additional Info:
Elizabeth Cook didn't quite know what she was doing. But she knew there were songs, and they had to get out. Six even years since her critically acclaimed Welder, as well as much personal tumult, there were songs that needed to be born. «If anything, (Exodus) is a pledge of allegiance for the bad girls and the Homecoming Queens who got caught in a scandal. It's a bill of rights, and a testimony for those good girls who got away with more than they should have. „I'm slow, and getting slower,“ laughs the lanky blond, unapologetically. „I'm taking my time, really drilling down. There were nine versions of 'Methadone Blues.' I've never done that before. I love that entrenchment and dedication — and I wasn't going to do any less than what needed to be done.“From DexterGreen's(also the album's producer) openingelectric guitar, equal parts forebodingandfraught,»Exodus of Venus" hurlsa churlish witness to erotic upheaval and the drives that subsume our best notions. «Exodus»is an exhortation of sexual surrender that pushespast the brink of reason. For fans of the Florida-born'n'raised Cook, a Grand Ole Opry regular, SiriusXM Outlaw Country hostess and David Letterman favorite, Exodus of Venus will be something of a shock. If she maintains the tang of her drawl, what emerges — beyond Cook's always vibrant and vivid sense of detail — is a song cycle soaked in turpentine, musk and honey.«There hasn't been a lot to laugh about,» confesses the effervescent songwriter who once penned «It Takes Balls To Be A Woman» with equal parts Dolly Parton pluck and Loretta Lynn brio. «Things have been heavy and dark, and I feel really different. I aspire to be more than clever or dark or poignant, but to be honest. I want that to supersede everything. Cook emerged a tougher, wiser woman. If her years as a rough stock Minnie Pearl, part comedienne, part chronicler of life beyond the urban hipeoisie, had cast her first glass of champagne ebullience as a sparkling presence of hillbilly authenticity, Exodus of Venus suggests a woman tapping into the force of her true power. Frank, stumbling, angry, exhausted, triumphant, she owns the ragged edges, the torn seams and worn thin places. After years of getting by on charm, with dysfunction part of the family's functionality, it all came apart in Cook's hands. But in the wreckage of death and divorce, Cook found liberation and emancipation. „Listen! We're going from Little Feat to REM, then put Appalachian harmonies on it. It's all funky grooves with dark guitars, burning guitars. People were tweeting me, 'Are you keeping it country?' And the truth is: No, I'm keeping it real. Not to a genre, but to what these songs are.
