I Hope

Darla

Remember The Sundays? Me too. Do you adore Mazzy Star? I thought so. Well, then it’s time to quit reading record reviews and hunt down a copy of Holiday Flyer’s CD, I Hope. Katie Conley has all of the delicate yet infectious vocal stylings of Hope Sandoval of Mazzy Star or The Sundays’ Harriet Wheeler. Holiday Flyer isn’t derivative, but rather a rare siren that can be mentioned with these other great groups and great vocalists.

You Make Us Go

Darla

Sweet, light, summery pop melodies. Sugary girl and boy vocals are set amidst instrumentation ranging from simple guitar and voice to the inclusion of flute, light percussion, piano, trombone, and cello. This avoids getting cluttered, instead staying rather simple, pure and sparkling, yet richly textured throughout. Very pleasant.
