Love Letters From the Electric Chair

Austin's got no shortage of bands with a taste for the macabre, so welcome murder balladeer Izzy Cox to the hot seat. She's Texan and French-Canadian via California, a confluence that shapes Love Letters' electrified voodoo-billy with a Crampsy twist of Southern cabaret and silent-movie panache. It's the anti-book of love, 50 ways to grieve your lover.
