CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

This tension between the head and heart, between the country and the city, is what fuels Midwest Farmer's Daughter, placing it on a warm, hazy plane that feels simultaneously sophisticated and down-home.

90
PopMatters
Her bold delivery and fresh take on classic tropes show she’s a master of detailing the chaos of life. She’s a double threat who can write ‘em and sing ‘em.

Paste
Her voice is equally as engaging as her writing, going from mournful to exclamatory, oftentimes in the same song. There have been comparisons to Loretta Lynn, which must be flattering to the up-and-coming singer. To write, sing and relate to your listeners as she does is a rare trio of traits.

Exclaim!

Midwest Farmer's Daughter will almost certainly stand among the best country records of 2016.

Rolling Stone

Midwest Farmer's Daughter is the first full-on country release on Third Man, the Nashville based label run by suspect carpetbagger Jack White, and dude was smart to wait ‘til he had an act this undeniable.

80
Uncut

Price’s excellent debut wastes absolutely no energy trying to address her place in the country music ecosystem, and gets right to telling us who she is, rather than who she ain’t.

80
Drowned in Sound

She strikes as authentic ... and is steeped in the traditional, Sixties/Seventies-era warts-and-all style songwriting of Loretta Lynn and Hank Williams.

80
The Guardian

It’s an album for whom “authenticity” is crucial, but it’s all the better for it.

80
Spin

Price lives up to the hype by marrying hardscrabble traditionalism with modern narratives on her debut album, Midwest Farmer’s Daughter.

70
Pitchfork
It's an ambitious piece of music-making and storytelling, featuring a road-hardened backing band called the Price Tags and a singer whose flinty voice conveys both a guarded vulnerability and a reckless scrappiness.

Probably the best country album of the year. This is what country music is supposed to sound like. Price’s album opener “Hands of Time” contains more emotion and songwriting talent than anything on country radio combined, and it leads into a consistently, song-for-song fantastic album with uniformly incredible lyrics and melodies. A must-listen for country or folk fans.
