Great smile

Lisa Marr, who was lead singer for Cub and for yesterday's Beards song, can sing, is cute as a button, has written all kinds of songs from cuddly pop songs, pop-punk songs, and country-tinged songs, and seems to genuinely enjoy making music for her massive audiences of, uhm, dozens at best. This is The Lisa Marr Experiment with "Slaughterhouse Ceiling" off the album American Jitters. She went in the direction that her friend Neko Case went, but five years later, and that was way too late. Not to mention that Lisa simply can't bring up the air of Gothic Americana that Neko Case brings to her own music, she's just too much a happy person for that.

Ah well, those of us who know who she is can enjoy what she brings, and everybody else... (shrug). I guess that's the breaks.
