To all reading this: Check out Mary Lou Lord’s new song. It features a wondrous melody and to-die-for vocals and harmonies, and conjures an intoxicating sound (not to mention decade) long past. Cool lyrics, too. Bodes well for her forthcoming album.
And, speaking of albums…Natalie Prass’ self-titled debut, released last week, is well worth picking up. Or downloading. I hear her as Tift Merritt crossed with Kate Bush with a dash of Dionne Warwick or Diana Ross mixed in, a super-sweet voice accenting a somewhat eccentric and adventurous musical palate.
