Listening: Girls with Guitars

his was an interesting demonstration of the importance of the right music at the right time... Life is quite challenging right now and I just couldn't get to grips with this album. I know it's what I should love, it ticks all the boxes, but mostly it just irritated me and I didn't want to put it on.

 

Exceptions: Closer to Fine - the opening number of their first album (plus I know it from a great scene from L Word). And definitely my favourite number 'History of Us' - her voice is so open, so raw, so vulnerable. The accompaniment so skeletal and only slightly effected (I wouldn't mind fewer synth strings... ) And such a wonderful way to end an album.

 

I'll come back to this album but for now, I need something else.
