Hello Saferide

Commas are so last century. But I digress. This is very pleasing, and sometimes that’s enough. S. Vega-esque but with less consequence. Annika Norlin has a voice full of wonder and repeated surprise. I read all the lyrics posted at the band website and emerged quite intact. You don’t think too deeply but you do feel with her. HS's MySpace site claims one song made men feel quite upset. . .that they weren’t lesbians. (I’m not posting that one.) I do like what I hear here.

Thanks for the recommendation. You're right, "Long Lost Penpal" is beautiful. I found it at the following.

I've loved "In a Lonely Place" for many a year now. There's not much by The Smithereens I don't love, although I guess I like the first three albums best. Their EP, BEAUTY AND SADNESS is excellent as well and although out of print, is available at Amazon for as low as $1.15 plus S&H.

Thanks for your comments.
