Sarah Shannon
"City Morning Song"
(Minty Fresh)

Sarah Shannon used to fron Velocity Girl, a rock band with a female lead singer I had a crush on (see also: Save Ferris, Letters to Cleo, That Dog and Dance Hall Crashers). She's had a solo career for a minute now and Minty Fresh has just released her sophomore album, "City Morning Song," a poppish, jazzy record featuring trumpets, keys, Casey Foubert of Pedro the Lion, Yukki Matthews from Seldom and Sonny Votolato of the Votolatos.

This album is fairly refreshing; for one thing, there's no sultry, smoker vocals on this (i.e. Feist), shitty would-be raps (i.e. Gwen Stefani), or posuering (i.e. Eve). Instead, there's a some pretty catchy pop tunes that I would listen to in order to get out of a bad mood. Peep this record or you'll be sorry.
