Soul Tracks
Stewart righty concluded that the latter scenario is closer to the truth and stuck to a genre that she helped refine, is true to her principals and also has the advantage of making her distinctive.
Although most times her experimentation works (Grandma), there are times when it falters and you wonder if the track would perhaps fit better on another album altogether. Aside from those few missteps, the Floacist’s third album is a highly enjoyable journey from start to finish.

Still aligned with Chris “Big Dog” Davis, who played all but one guitar line and one bassline and produced it all, Stewart stretches out across 13 tracks of introspection, romantic contentment and strife, sisterhood, and motherhood. It’s all positive and empowered reflection, expressed through Stewart’s mostly whispery recitations and singing.
