Album Review

Katie Herzig's follow-up to her mostly acoustic indie folk debut Watch Them Fall is denser and more electric but maintains the sweet, calm mood that her voice almost demands. The more complex arrangements not only utilize electric guitar, but even clashing sounds, bleeps, feedback-type noises — really sound effects — on certain tracks. However, Weightless still has an acoustic base, or at least a presence, throughout. "Butterfly" is a quiet acoustic guitar piece with fast-moving rhythms and layered harmonies ("I will never change for you") that ends with added subtle percussion and vibraphone sounds. The dreamy waltz "Crazy" begins with simple guitars and collects various electronic effects as it progresses, as do other tracks on the album, if not as symbolically with the song’s subject. The tone is playful, even cute, though also sincere, especially in the vocal delivery. What really defines the album is Herzig’s skill at writing melody which, when carried by her distinctive soprano, makes for a breezy and hook-charged ride. At 14 tracks, the record rambles a little, despite the fact that a handful of songs clock in at under three minutes. Two-thirds of the way through, it culminates with the dynamically and melodically dramatic title track, in which overdubbed vocals confess, "I am brokenhearted/And you are beautiful/I am undecided/And you are weightless." As it’s her first album after the breakup of her band, Newcomers Home, Herzig may still be settling into a sound, but her way with melody and structure leads her quite naturally into the indie pop realm for a sophomore release that satisfies.

Pretty little liars

Jack and Jill was on the 2nd episode of pretty little liars!!!

Mellow tone

This album has a mellow tone,its relaxing, peaceful, and nice. Normally this album or type of music reminds me of drinking lemonade under a umberella on a hot summer day. Overall I like Charlie Chaplin song the best. You rock Katie Herzig!!

Love it

Love her and I did from the first time I heard her. I was on pandoras radio and heard Charlie Chaplin and It was awesome and it was a instant love that is so rare in music I listen too!!! To me some of her songs sound like Taylor swift and that might be good or bad!!!

Biography

Born: California

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Katie Herzig struck out on her own after eight years as the frontwoman for Newcomers Home. Herzig was no stranger to the solo game, having released her first solo album, Watch Them Fall, in 2004, so it was no surprise when, following the dissolution of Newcomers Home in 2006, Herzig put together a second album, Weightless, which was released that summer. Comprised of quirky, heartfelt songs that nodded to twangy, warm-voiced artists like Devon Sproule and Neko Case, the album generated quite a bit...
