15-10-2011 // Album: Lou Canon - Lou Canon|
Lou Canon has made one of the finest albums of the year. i bought this album right away via her bandcamp-page after the last note of the final song faded out. And I continue to listen to it again and again several times a day (hence the silence on the blog over the last 2 days..). The great thing about this album is the variety in the songs. Lou Canon has crafted a serie of 10 songs in which she displays a talent to work with several types of songs. She can be very sweet and soft (to find your bed, my girls), but also very up-tempo, making a song like a little party you want to attend to (heart of, close to me).
Besides the fine tunes Lou Canon and her partner-in-crime Hayden crafted for this debut-album, it’s that variety that makes this album something special from start to finish. I’m undoubtfully a sucker for (pretty) girls with guitars and the beautiful, usually sweet, soft tunes they create. These singer-songwriters can usually produce a good, sometimes great, dreamy EP with a few good tracks and pretty vocals.. A whole album is something different though, because 10 dreamy songs have a good chance of becoming boring or just mellow background music. Lou Canon dodges that bullet on this album by gearing up from time to time.
This is best enjoyed any time of the day; I woke up with this album, read the paper in the morning to it, cooked my diner singing along & at the moment I’m reading a book, while drinking a cold beer with Lou Canon singing. I’m pretty sure I will fall asleep to her voice tonight aswell, just like last night.
Great album. Good job Lou!
