She may wear nudie suits and cowgirl boots, but Margo Price cannot be pinned down as "country." Like her old pal Sturgill Simpson, she works hard for her outsider label—and on her fourth album, she's so far outside she's in a whole other genre. Having shed the Loretta Lynn drag of her Nashville breakthrough, 2016's Midwest Farmer's Daughter, Price is letting herself get weird, and it's awesome. Strays was recorded in Topanga Canyon and partly written while Price and husband/multi-instrumentalist band member Jeremy Ivey were tripping on mushrooms. Opener "Been to the Mountain" rides a deep and heavy bad-ass groove with Price giving a three-minute recap of her 2022 memoir, Maybe We'll Make It: "I've been a child and I've been a mother … Used to be your waitress but now I'm a consumer/ I've been on food stamps, I've been outta my mind/ I've rolled in dirty dollars, stood in the welfare line … I've been called every name in the book, honey/ Come on, take your best shot." (That last line is delivered with heavy reverb and a triumphant wail.) "Light Me Up" starts off on a tender '70s singer-songwriter vibe before jangling into a Heart-like psych-out with fiery guitar—courtesy of the Heartbreakers' Mike Wilson. Wilson's late musical partner Tom Petty is like the friendly ghost of the album, which seemingly takes inspiration from his Wildflowers era as well as his and Wilson's old band Mudcrutch. Sharon Van Etten backs up Price on head trip "Radio," with Price issuing a plea for taking a break from the world that could also double as a sexy come-on: "Only thing I have on is the radio." Piano ballad "County Road" channels Linda Ronstadt's late '70s band with a canyon dust-and-sun squint, and "Time Machine" twinkles with a Rickie Lee Jones sweetheart groove—Price pushing into her upper register as producer Jonathan Wilson (Angel Olsen, Father John Misty) sets the mood with Moog bass. Lucius' Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig lend trademark high-class vocals to the Revolver psych-pop of "Anytime You Call." As always, Price's lyrics are so incisive as to be capable of cutting to the bone. "Lydia" is a haunting, almost spoken-word observation on the horrors and hardships of living on the fringes and making decisions dictated by poverty and substance abuse, and how much harder things are once women's rights are stripped away—like Go Ask Alice in a song. "At the clinic, wonderin' what your face would be like/ Mascara bleedin' to my eyes/ Tied like a dog on a chain with a midlife crisis and an ex-husband/ Sneaking a Marlboro Ultra Light I stole from a nurse out there in the alley/ Halfway home is where the heart is and I'm halfway home," she speak-sings. And the bluesy strutter "Change of Heart" delivers a kiss-off as dark as anything by Richard and Linda Thompson: "Don't worry about the war/ Nobody's winning … I never loved you and I always will/ Have a change of heart/ I've had a change of heart." © Shelly Ridenour/Qobuz
