Album Review

Danceable pop with '80s synths but also tasteful indie rock guitars and real drums. Cohen puts forth a BIG sound, creating catchy and highly marketable melodies with a strong, soaring feel -- you can just visualize the crane-shot video to go with tracks like 5 or 8. Solid female vocals, tight harmonies, catchy melodies everywhere. Maybe it's a bit heavyhanded, but it's plenty likeable.

You might have heard her before, with bands like The Vels, Die Monster Die, and Espadrille.

1- Peppy and fast, going for a bit of dark mystery
2- Devo-like synth bounce, light jazz guitar later
3- Strong sweeping feel, jangly guitars
4- Indie pop guitar strums, stiff delivery.
5- High energy space ride. Growly synth, echoey rambling vocal, lots of little sci-fi sounds.
6- Stern, serious. Snappy chorus, spaceout guitar ending
7- Quickly catchy, w/fuzzed out guitars.
8- Guitars, twangy at first, then dark and rocking. Big grand commercial sound
9- Total '80s dancefloor. Poppy, with appropriate nearly-goth drama
10- Fast rolling tempo, insistent guitar riffing
