AllMusic Review by

Like Drag City stablemates Palace (a major influence), Edith Frost haunts the more oddball fringes of country music; recorded with members of Gastr del Sol, Calling Over Time is a contemplative and atmospheric collection, its gentle, downcast songs accented by slightly off-kilter organ drones and muted piano fills. Frost is a tremendous songwriter and a poignant lyricist, as well as a wonderfully expressive singer; her music is both fresh and strangely familiar, and her best efforts -- "Temporary Loan," "Pony Song," and the stunning "Give up Your Love" -- are powerful expressions of soul-baring beauty. A stellar debut.
