What We Lose in the Fire We Gain in the Flood
This one came totally unexpectedly as a suggestion from a colleague. I gave it a try because I had been totally seduced by one track (Let The Record Go) and eventually got a superb album to listen to. Their style ranges from rock, pop and folk in the best of manners. The voice of singer Laura Burhenn is reminiscent of Aimee Mann's, which means soulful and very emotional, but she can also deliver on more upbeat tracks. This collection of songs reflects a very home-made and warm feel that wraps you almost instantly. Perfect for an Autumn Sunday.
If you've never heard of this really great new band, I can only encourage you to head over to their website and download two songs for free, which will probably make you want to buy the whole record afterwards. You (kinda) have my word on that!
