Album Review

Historically, Las Vegas has been stereotyped as the land of campy Wayne Newton disciples, but anyone who seriously investigates the Vegas music scene will find a lot of artists who defy that stereotype.

But more important than the name is the music, and In a Frail Daydream makes it clear that Penny's Pet Dragonfly is a band of substance.
