[AMERICAFOLKTRY] It takes some getting used to, but once you accept that Carrie Rodriguez’s latest album, Give Me All You Got, does not fit comfortably into the folk, rock, Americana or country genres but rather incorporates and embodies them all, you should dig the ride. Rodriguez’s vocals are empowered and sassy one minute, subtle and introspective the next. Her range keeps you wondering what she will do from one song to another. Her prowess on the violin is a nice touch, too. Her tracks frequent the love-and-heartbreak section of the songwriting department a bit too often for some people’s tastes, but otherwise she is a damn good performer.
