Toronto singer-songwriter Lindi Ortega is a lot of country and a lot of rock ‘n’ roll. Her new album, Cigarettes & Truckstops – on Last Gang Records – is pure roots music gold; filled with country, rockabilly – even a bit of the blues. For ten strong songs Ortega sings passionately, sweetly, seductively and sometimes not too happily about broken hearts, distant lovers, the rights and the wrongs of love. She’s currently out on tour opening for Social Distortion and plays the Electric Factory tomorrow evening, Saturday, November 3rd. Go here for tickets to the show. Below, download “Don’t Wanna Hear It,” and stream Lindi’s new album. You can purchase the record here.
