In order to jump start my musical doldrums I have taken advantage of CD Babyâ€™s $5 sale as I do most every year.
Hereâ€™s what I bought this time:
Close Your Eyes and Heal by Tamara Dearing â€“ the sound is so lo-fi and itâ€™s mixed so low that I can barely hear it unless I crank my speakers. But once I can hear it I like it. She reminds me of Regina Spektor a little. Very quirky, piano.
Her Fabulous Debut by Carla Ulbrich â€“ Chose this one because judging by the photo on the cover and the title of the first song, (â€œPlease Do Something Stupidâ€?) I thought it would be silly and entertaining. It is. I love Christine Lavin and this reminds me of her. Bordering on theatrical.
“Cut a Manâ€™s Heart Out” by Arlene Bishop â€“ Other than CD Baby samples, I have not heard yet
“Girl Here Falling”by Sarah Haddock â€“ againâ€¦ not heard yet
“Midday Songs” by Lisa Fraser – againâ€¦ not heard yet
Iâ€™ll write more about those other three when I listen to them.
Go pick out some CDs for yourself.
