These Wilder Things is full of timeless tunes from the haunting gospel sounds of Trouble and Woe to the bluegrassy One Light Shining (featuring Jerry Douglas) to the Irish-flavored Life Is Long. This recording delves deeper into darker, indie-pop sounds, especially on songs like the moody title track or Pockets, featuring iconic roots-rocker Mark Knopfler on guitar and vocals. The nine originals on this record prove Ruth is a first-rate songwriter along the lines of Gillian Welch, while her stunning makeover of Bruce Springsteen s Dancing in the Dark would even leave The Boss s jaw on the floor. Appealing to indie fans as well as lovers of folk and Americana music, These Wilder Things confirms that Ruth Moody is indeed one force to be reckoned with.
