Album Review

On this 1996 debut the Ephemera girls were still teens, but their sound was actually much less twee and girlish here than on their better-known later albums. And that is not necessarily a bad thing at all. The production and the arrangements, though often good, are not yet as sophisticated as they would later become through the aid of Yngve Saetre.

A charming and enjoyable, if not essential, album.
