Lisa Marr delivers a mumbled profanity within the opening moments of 4 AM, which somehow sets the stage of what is to follow. Not that the rest of the album is filled with nothing but cussing, but it does reveal an influence from early-period Liz Phair. Imagine Phair dropping some of the sexual thematic matters and fronting an alt-country band and you begin to get an idea for what Marr presents. The songs alternate genre between honky tonk Americana and tough-grrl indie rock. The instrumentation is nicely varied from what one would expect from this idea, with clarients, mandolins, fiddles, and even some oompah horns to accompany the slow and smokey vocals on one of the songs.
If you're a fan of Lisa Marr (or if you're just a Marr neophyte) you'll be blown away by this album. A long way from her earlier work with Cub (which I still love), this is more developed and intricate, and yes, experimental. Marr plays around with different styles and genres, creating a totally unique album, you have to hear it for yourself, order it now!
