Album Review

Held back for some time by legal troubles, Warren Zanes' Memory Girls is as a fine a debut as any, ranging from stripped down folk to torch song to pop orchestral. Employing a rich production style (seemingly originating with Wilco's Summerteeth), Zane's obscure, fragmented songs are augmented by a subtle electro-acoustic mix. The wonderful New Orleans ballad "Did You Recognize My Love?", for example, swirls with what sounds like accordion, clarinet, piano, before giving way to "Where We Began, which begins with treated drum beats and ambient keyboards and builds to a more traditional chorus (albeit still filled with nuanced production tricks). The album is also gently star-studded — Patty Griffin, Emmylou Harris, and Morphine's Billy Conway all lend their subtle supporting talents to the mix, placing Zane firmly in the throng of the new singer-songwriter movement.

Best Pop CD of 2003

Put the top down, turn up the volume, and drive! Great pop music.

A Fantastic CD

Have you ever had a CD that you loved so much that you wanted buy it for all your friends? This is the one for me. I saw a positive review of this in a music mag, and bought it for grins. Three years later it remain in heavy rotation. "World of Concrete," "Sidewalk Sale," "Have You Recalled the Days," and "When the World Gets Weak" are outstanding tracks. Do yourself a favor and get this now.

(He earned a Ph.D. in visual and cultural studies in 2002 from the University of Rochester, and would eventually land a teaching...
