Album Review

Reviewed 2008-01-01
Impressive indie pop with a Americana/Western/roots touch. Pretty stuff with airy, on-target female vocals. Like a straight man for the Ditty Bops, but more earnest and touching. Doesn't rock out madly, but there are plenty of toe-tappers here. Lyrics are creative and thematic, often richly rewarding. Moments of straight indie pop, too: 1,3,4. Skip straight to track 5 for some gorgeous heart-string-strumming singing. This is great stuff. Don't miss it.

1- Minor key midtempo, catchy chorus
2- Catchy, mid/fast-stepping. Town-hall singalong hoot 'n' holler.
3- Upbeat, breezy indie pop
4- Nostalgic pop, soft, mid/fast
5- Swaying. Sad but not overdone. Some beautiful high vocals.
6- Loping country feel, rather mellow
7- Twangy upbeat country
8- Old banjo waltz. Upbeat w/sad lyrics.
9- Midtempo country heartbreak
10- Catchy country twang, reasonably rocking
11- Moping instrumental
12- Minor key, catchy. "God damn" is technically an FCC.
13- Wistful, a bit sad, mid/fast.
14- A happy, dreamy swing
