Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Liesl’s Wet Dress are odd. They inhabit a shady world of weird characters. Their music is rock with a tasty psychedelic flavour. Antonette Goroch’s vocals are very impressive.

The energetic “Over You” is driven by a funky, seductive mood and Antonette’s voice. The song has a an interesting exotic sound and some nice tempo changes.

“Not a Love Song” is a cheerful heartbreaker that’s done in a country style.

“The Raven” is part bluegrass, part rock and all original. The lyrics are nightmarish and colorful. The slow

“Intoxicating Brew” has Antonette Goroch singing of love with unusual metaphors.

“You surround me like a misty fog.”

she sings.

The closing “Ruby” is a Doors-like song of an unusual girl.

“Shedding Skin” is an impressive debut that breaks new musical ground.
