Music Reviews August 29, 2010
Sarah Jaffe- “Suburban Nature”
Folksy indie singer-songwriter
Pleasant melodic songs with very resonant vocals and an array of acoustic instruments. The driving vocals make the think of a folksy Regina Spektor. Changes between lighter songs and darker strings driven songs.
Recommended Tracks: 1, 3, 13 FCC: Clean
RIYL: Regina Spektor (but folksy), Anni Rossi (but all acoustic)
Serial Killer- “Night Driving in Small Towns”
Cutesy poppy indie with occasional country flair
Songs feature either female vocals with harmonies or Matt and Kim/Mates of State style boy-girl singing. Light indie rock with occasional electric piano and country/folksy sounds interspersed in addition to standard instruments. As a whole the album stays pretty light. Pretty solid as a whole but nothing spectacular here.
Recommended Tracks: 1, 2, 8, 3 FCC: Clean
