iTunes Review

Singer/songwriter Meiko’s sophomore long-player delivers more of the breezy folk-pop that made her self-titled debut release such a treat. The Bright Side lives up to its title with wide-eyed odes to romance, delivered by Meiko with breathy, waifish vocals that capture her unpretentious charm. The album’s tracks benefit from input by such production notables as Styrofoam, Jimmy Messer and Greg Collins, who keep the sound clean and uncluttered as they blend acoustic instrumentation with judicious use of electronica beats. Meiko dives headlong into new infatuation on “I’m in Love,” daydreams about domestic bliss on “I’m Not Sorry” and gets positively obsessive on “When the Doors Close.” Tracks like the gleefully catty “Real Real Sweet” and the reflectively rocking “Thinking Too Much” bring in hints of ‘60s girl-group pop. The erotic intrigue of “Leave the Light On” and the regretful sentiments of “Good Looking Loser” add a little darkness to the prevailingly sunny mood. Packed with hooks and lyrically beguiling, The Bright Side reveals solid craft and genuine feeling beneath its engaging sonic sparkle.
