True Margarit-Juggler’s Progress (You Djinni Us Songs)
This is sunny and catchy piano pop that is surprisingly smart. If you like Ben Folds, play this. Even though you won’t find “let’s party in Cali” anthems like on a Jack’s Mannequin record, you will still be left with that mental acuteness and cracked smile that comes with being cheered up. Eichler’s voice is what hits you first. Husky yet so stretchable and tangible, inescapably endowing the record with a loveable quirkiness. The sparse production tricks, and lack of synths really cuts the fat and focuses the sound on the bass, piano and her amazing voice. I love how the bass guitar really grooves out sometimes. Check this out. All songs end about 7-10 seconds before they say they do. FCC CLEAN Picks 4, 1, 2, 5, 10. DJ Doublestuf
1. Bouncy and quirky. I like her faleseto. One of the catchier happy songs
2. Cool lyrics about Hamlet, more somber than others songs
3. Plucking violin, nice touch because the piano gets really repetitive
4. Super catchy, my fav song on the album. Quirky/funny lyrics, happy sounding, great delivery by Eichler
5. More ballady, inspirational, great track
6. This starts to sound the same as the other bouncy songs
7. 1930s movie sounding
8. slower more ballady
9. fillerish
10. amazing melodramatic track in her eclectic style, emotional, ruminating
11. dissonantish
12. less vocals, electric organ ends about 20 secs before the song does
13. sensitive outro. Love it
