On the fiery title track to her debut, 22-year-old Lauren Pritchard forsakes a drab life in her Tennessee hometown. It's a perfect calling card for a restless striver who performed in Spring Awakening before landing in London to record Wasted in Jackson. The album is all neo-Dusty drama: big voice, big strings, big heartache. It's formulaic, but it mixes Southern orneriness with Brit-style quirks; "Bad Time to Fall" is a happy funk tune about hating happy tunes, and on the Marcus Mumford-produced art-folk number "When the Night Kills the Day," Pritchard moans with the dark, outsize passion of Kate Bush.
