“O’Donovan — Aoife O’Donovan. Remember that name, because with a sultry voice that makes her sound like a bluesier Alison Krauss, she’s about to become the newest darling of the Americana set. Also like Krauss, O’Donovan’s four-piece neo-folk outfit (which includes banjoist Gregory Liszt from Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions Band) creates refreshing rearrangements of familiar tunes. Grounded by double bass and cello, the year’s most descriptively titled album turns public-domain tunes into bluegrass and chamber folk. With those, plus thrillingly original takes on Bill Monroe’s Can’t You Hear Me Callin’ and Robert Johnson’s Come On in My Kitchen, Shaken is stirring.” (* * * 1/2) – Brian Mansfield, USA Today
