Album Review
Reviewed 2001-10-01
Singer-songwriter with her own brand of sadcore – same feel as Ida, Julie Doiron. She brings a very uniquely husky & distinctive voice to the genre. Standard rock backing with some violin, piano thrown in. –nari

1-4: drowsy, melancholic folky ballads

5: optimistic, determined, full and pretty chorus

6: swinging tempo, slinky minor key melody; by Leonard Cohen

7: intimate, regretful piece with just vocals+guitar

8: exotic gypsy-esque fiddle, drums that sound alive, has momentum & lift

9: very bitterly dark chords, recalls a Codeine song; builds and becomes increasingly agitated & pained

10: instrumental track; wintry, crystalline electric guitars; swells & doubles tempo

11: fabulously heartbroken cover of “A Day In the Life of a Fool”
