Prolific songwriter Katharine Daly has all the wry politicking of The Mekons, the astute nerviness of Mayo Thompson and Judee Sill’s plaintive god-fearing and god-wanting, and delivers with a high and wild yodel. 2016’s Luggs was recorded as a duo, with another record on the way.. Live, they scrap and scrounge with ersatz Velvets guitar and thrumbling rhythms. Ostraaly band 2019.
