Sometimes when it comes to albums, I have the (good? bad?) habit to “judge a book by its cover”. Rosie Jones‘ Greatest Hits, released on Got Got Need Records last week, is a twirl of sweetness with bright, mouth-watering illustrations for artwork; and the music is just as delightful as those colorful cookies. With vocals reminiscent of Jenny Lewis and sunny music with easy, folk touches, Rosie may be just another singer-songwriter, but her cuteness, somewhere between Emmy the Great and Alessi’s Ark, is definitely more than needed when the thermometer nears one-digit degrees Celsius: the perfect way to fight winter depression. Get it here! (And though it’s free, consider making a donation, that would be nice.)
My name has five letters in it, and comes up in some Bright Eyes songs. I am (apparently) an artist, with too much time on her hands. Well, enough to blog (almost) daily. I am 1/4 (the smallest one, actually) of Lazy Acre Records; I also write & photograph for a
localmagazine based in Englaaand and makeused to draw musically-inspired comics for a canadian mag (RIP Inscribed). As if that wasn't enough, I book bands for a local experimental music venue called Subterrarium: we rock pretty hard. Sometimes I can be quite cute. I used tostill have a crush on Marty McFly; I like baking, overusing semi-colons, the smell of the sea, and thunderstorms.
I tend to be quite the busy bee, but if you make VERY sexy music and want me to listen and enjoy and possibly even (!!) write about it, shoot me a mail, baby. music(at)alicetragedy(dot)org
