Sonya Cotton's Red River will soothe a roiled sea. Although what she sings about (treachery, sickness, death) is hardly calming, and the record was fueled by carnage in her personal life - there is, in fact, a photo of Cotton kneeling astride a dead deer on the cover - something about the soft vocals and reverent instrumentation clears the mind like a childhood lullaby.
