I stumbled across Jolie Holland on the radio last night – which makes sense, because I was driving with Mr. Greg Katz, general manager of UCLARadio.com. I was immediately blown away and had to – had to – hear more. Boy was I unprepared.
Vocally, Holland sounds somewhere between Feist’s jazzy improvisations and Fiona Apple’s vulnerability. Plus an accent. If I didn’t have a longterm girlfriend, I’d already be in love – and that’s not even mentioning the completely amazing lounge-y acoustic backing band. Taking a decidedly pro-blogger stance, Anti- Records has made a pair of tracks available from the forthcoming album Springtime Can Kill You in gorgeous 192kpbs, so please folks, shower them with kisses and buy this record.

This Song Is A Mess But So Am I has responded to an eviscerating review by Cokemachineglow’s Sean Ford by titling a song on it’s new EP “Is This Childish Enough For You Sean Ford?” I would say so, yeah.
