Album Review
Alma Mahler
Reviewed 2008-07-05
Jazzy folk (and some pop turns) with soft, stylized female vocals (think Jolie Holland). Nice range of instruments and sounds. All pretty good! Try upbeat 4, 5, 7 and slower 1, 6. No FCCs.

1) Minimalist tune with jazzy drums, bass, piano, and quiet vox. Nice build up around 4, then slows til end.
2) Upbeat folk-jazz, reminiscent of some 70s lady music like Rickie Lee Jones. Theme for scooting around the city.
3) Spritely vox with sullen piano, haunting violin and bass.
4) Sounds like a summer day on a front porch. Great piano, nice story in verse, and catchy chorus.
5) Upbeat, poppy rhythm - very catchy.
6) Quiet, suspended beginning. vox (enter ~1 min in to song) over shimmery noises suspended.
7) Accordion, drums, cello swirl and build behind a chanted refrain
8) Relaxed trumpet, piano, drums & pretty verses
9) Just her voice, ukulele (?), and a few harmonies - nice-sounding home recording.
