Perfect Summer Pop
Great album to kick off summer with. Catchy songs for grown ups! Just makes me wanna put the top down and take a long drive down PCH.
Sunshine State of Mind
Sunshine State of Mind is an uncharacteristically straightforward title for Katrina Carlson’s 5th CD, and the title track is in fact Katrina’s anticipated, catchy, feeling good, sing-a-long. But as the album progresses we are treated once again to a bouquet of complex, diverse and sophisticated melodies wrapped around her signature expressive, straight-from-the-heart lyrics. She sings, “sometimes life doesn’t walk in a straight line”, and neither do Katrina’s lyrics. The beauty of this work is truly appreciated with a deep listening that reveals a refined and intentional nuanced paradox. It’s a joyous dance of word play and strong contrasts that reflect an authentic spectrum of bold vulnerability mixed with unapologetic whimsy. Katrina’s music oozes optimism yet doesn’t back away from the edgy reality that recognizes, “we all get hurt…in that awkward age between birth and death.” “Sunshine” is another gift from an artist who pours everything into her work and reminds us that through it all, in the end, “still, love is possible.” Thank you Katrina for this genuine poetic music of your soul.
I'm really liking this record! Do they actually call it that anymore? :) Anyway, great job to Katrina Carlson for blending feel good melodies and catchy hooks. It definitely puts me in a "sunshine state" and my young son is enjoying it too.
