A few weeks ago while I was drunk watching Grey’s Anatomy (I’m a sucker for melodrama since my pre-K days as a “Young and the Restless” follower). I happened upon a song by Emy Reynolds that I enjoyed, so I downloaded her EP. I completely forgot about it, which is one of the dangers of drunken iTunes purchasing.
After listening to the All Songs Considered podcast where Jonsi from Sigur Ros recommended a Billie Holliday song, I thought I should check out some lady singers, even if I wasn’t in Costa Rica eating dolphins. I stumbled upon the EP and gave it a listen. Then, I listened again.
I don’t want to write a review where I talk about the album being derivative of Pavement. I also will not be writing anything about Ms. Reynolds because she doesn’t have a wikipedia page and that is as much research as I’m willing to do. I like the EP because it’s sparse and I find her voice enchanting. I chose to post this cut because it has a xylophone, and everyone knows how much Sox Goldfarb hates the xylophone (see: Freelance Whales).
Sorry, I couldn’t upload the mp3 because it was too large. Or, because I’m an idiot.
