Tue, 15 Mar 2011 00:00:00 EDT

Quick Spin: Caitlin Rose's 'Own Side Now'

Tue, 15 Mar 2011 00:00:00 EDT

Given a quick listen, Nashville singer-songwriter Caitlin Rose's full-length debut comes across as a tuneful, unassuming affair. Let it sink in deeper, and it reveals the work of a deft melodist and lyricist, an artist as incisive and self-possessed, in her way, as Jenny Lewis or Feist.
