Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
It is not actually a soundtrack to an existing film, but it is set up in that way. Each song it’s own scene, melting into one another. The first track is just under a minute long and serves as the intro (or where credits may be?). The second track has a beachy feel, which sounds like Beach Boys meets Coma Savants. Then that sound shows up again on track 10.
The songs range in length from 45 seconds to almost 5 minutes. They all are a combination of jazz, pop, and funk. Lydia (no last name that I can see) is the front person for most every song. Her voice is clear with a jazzy feel and fits the music well. The rest of the musicians are equally talented, making up a unique and interesting sound.
To learn more about Penny Nation visit: Penny Nation this is a cool flash presentation about “Penny” and who “she” is. It’s cool…if you have high speed Internet. (If you don’t, what are you waiting for?)
Stand out tracks “Mr. Rogers”, “Darwin” and “Green Song #5”.
