More personal than its predecessor, Leaving Eden, Polecat Creek’s third CD grabs the Tough Subjects – death, temptation, old age – with both hands and stares them down…in a nice way. Laurelyn and Kari are true roots musicians, rooted in 2007, rooted in life as they see it around them. They are not play-acting, and they are not paying homage to tradition for tradition’s sake. Rather, in Ordinary Seasons, they are celebrating ordinary life, where cardinals fly through the yard, hurricanes happen, temptation is tough to resist, and people around you might speak Spanish. Where ultimately you will grow old and die, and the only thing that matters is what’s in your heart. This album takes those seemingly ordinary things, and shows us the extraordinary within them.
