Miss Massive Snowflake – “So Sweet” – [North Pole Records]
The title of the album should have clued me into how much I would love this. There are donuts on the cover, for Pete’s sake. I have a sweet tooth for sure, but this music is anything but cloying. Is it Shane de Leon’s amazing lyrics that are so fascinating to listen to? Is it Jeanne Kennedy Crosby’s quirky in just the right places bass? Or maybe Andy Brown’s drums that punctuate this psychedelic piece de resistance so wonderfully? Truly satisfying from start to finish, I thoroughly enjoyed blasting this in my car and rolling the windows down so everyone could hear how awesome it is.
