Soccer Mommy made a lot of noise last year with their debut album “Clean,” and this year’s sophmore album, Color Theory, proves they still got it.
Beautiful, dreamy grunge. A most excellent album.
Key tracks: Royal Screw Up, Yellow is the Color of Her Eyes, Crawling in My Skin, Stain.
FFO: Liz Phair. Seriously. Color Theory leans heavily on her influence. And that is not a bad thing.
Other notable releases:
Philly’s Lojii has released Lo & Behold, a smooth collection of positive rap songs. Positive doesn’t have to mean preachy, and can mean street smart–and that’s proven by this album. Very nice. Best of all: It’s pay-what- you-like!
Cadillac Three’s new one, Country Fuzz, is a solid record. I really liked Jack Daniel’s Heart.
