In one of those fits of Sunday AM sloth, I watched a show about Lisa Marie Presley on VH1. I came away with two conclusions 1) She's pretty entertaining and unpretentious in an interview 2) She is a good singer and as a songwriter, has a great pop ear 3) She or whoever does her song arrangements is really fucking good. It's commercial pop, but there's no cheese - all of her songs sound like you could bang them out live with a band to good effect.

So I downloaded the album and it's surprisingly good. She sounds a little like Liz Phair, and at times like Toni Halliday. Moody, dark pop. I was bugging LK about it on AIM today and figured I should get it out of my system here.

Anyway I may break down and buy the CD, because the MP3s sound really grainy and overly bright.

This is the good shit. It's not about tie dies marching in the street while their trust fund checks auto-deposit; it is what the deep thinkers on pacifism are saying. It's precisely the sort of ammunition (eek!) a reasonable peacenik needs in the face of the flag wavers, and gives you some reasonable things to say to people on the fence.
