I saw Erin 8-9 years ago supporting Po Girl and she was great live. I subsequently got several of her albums - all pretty good - but then she fell off my radar. This album has been out for a couple of years but Ive only recently got hold of it. To me this is a further step up from those earlier albums.
There are 13 self-penned songs over around 40 minutes. A range of styles is covered from catchy pop through more folky numbers to swing/jazz inflected. Erin's vocals are clear / very easy to listen to & deal with moods running from more intimate to fairly skittish. There's a whole range of tempos and subject matter so no two tracks are similar. Vocals are supported by complementary instrumentation with tasteful use of strings and percussion.
The 40 minutes passes enjoyably and all you want to do is press replay.
The packaging is all card, nicely designed and contains full lyrics
I guess there's no real killer song and nothing that completely stirs the senses but this is a lovely, high quality album from a mature artist.
