Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
This has been in my rotation for a couple of months now and I’ve yet to write more than a couple of sentences about it. I guess it’s one of those ones that just sort of washes over me while I’m listening and I don’t make a lot of notes, mental or otherwise. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not. At least I’m not going ‘what the hell?’ and racing to turn it off! Yes, I do that. Often, actually. If you think we post a lot of reviews, you should see the amount that doesn’t make it this far.
But I digress…Aly Tadros has a pleasing folksy voice. It reminds me of someone from the late 60s or maybe it’s just the style that does.
Serendipities has nice finger picking guitar parts, and cool melody. Her voice shines here too. This song has caught my ear more than once, and I think it’s safe to say it’s my stand out track.
Dressing Room has a Latin sound, while Linger channels her inner Ani.
Paper Mache might be my favorite. Great rhythm.
It’s a good album for those who collectors of the folksy pop genre.
