If you are looking for something to tide you over until the next Susan Court album, try Lily's running from the sky.... (email@example.com)
Recommended first album:
Running From The Sky is the only one we've heard
Lily Holbrook--vocals, guitar
Bill Roberts--guitar, keyboards
Lily and Bill
The superficial appearance of this album's packaging has the unfortunate side effect of making Holbrook appear less serious than she is. The back cover has a photo of the artist (who somewhat resembles Drew Barrymore) in a midriff-baring top--though the recent reinventions of Liz Phair and Jewel, coming on the heels of the initial invention of the likes of Britney Spears, may have oversensitized me to such things. And the booklet prominently displays cartoon drawings of her as a mermaid and as an astronaut, no doubt inspired by tracks titled "Mermaids" and "Spaceship." But once you get beyond these visual red herrings, you'll be pleased to find a lot of substance and originality on the disc.
