General comments:

She's got a strong voice (and can use it beautifully). The backgrounds are really creative and intriguing, which is kind of amazing, because apparently she does it all on Garageband. I think her music is fresh, inventive, and especially highly catchy and listenable. At least she's really caught my ears. (Neile)

Comments:

While the best tracks on here are the ones she pre-released as on her downloadable ep, this is still a strong debut. The creative backing showcases her lovely voice and the songwriting is impressively full of hooks, especially in contrast to most working in electronica. There's no messy looseness here, but playfulness and gorgeous songs and thoughtful sounds. Highly recommended for fans of electronica and of course lovely female vocals, and, mostly especially, driving, lively energy. (Neile)
