Infamous Angel

Listen to Iris DeMent for a few minutes and you begin to understand why country and folk music have begun to rediscover each other for the first time since the hootenanny days of the ’60s. With an unaffected, snow-pure voice and a batch of honest, adult songs about love, home, and family so good you’d swear you’ve heard them before, she seems to be a single-bodied reincarnation of the entire Carter Family. On Infamous Angel I hear America singing — and it sounds like Iris DeMent.
