Artist: Io Perry
Year/Label: 2006 / JupiterXrecords
Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
Io Perry has a soft whispery voice. The songs have a quiet, shy quality. Nice harmonies and pleasing melodies with a certain lo-fi sound.
“I’ll Pick You Up” is a sweet sleepy little tune that somehow sounds very British to me. This is my favorite track, today anyway.
“Saturday” is one that is especially lo-fi sounding as you can almost hear the crackle as if it were a record. I mean a “real” record, on vinyl.
“Not What it Seems” utilizes more instruments for a more full sound.
These songs have that quality where you hear them a few times, think ‘hey, these are nice’ but then next time you hear it you go, ‘oh I really like this song!’ Almost like it’s an old friend.
If you are in the mood for what I feel is comfortable Sunday morning music, this is a good bet.
