MTV Hive: Five Alt-Country Albums for a Twangy Summer

by Jim Allen
Chelle Rose, Ghost of Browder Holler

Raw, bluesy riffs run through the swampy Southern sounds Chelle Rose cooks up on her new album, produced by alt-Americana icon Ray Wylie Hubbard. When she really bares her fangs on killer cuts like “Alimony,” she can come off sounding like Lucinda Williams’ little sister out on parole with a well sharpened axe to grind. Out now on Lil Damsel Records.
