Album Review

If you are a no-name artist releasing your first LP, it helps to make a record where two members of Luna, three ex-Feelies (Dean Wareham, Stanley Demeski, Brenda Sauter, Glenn Mercer), and Robert Quine (Voidoids, Lou Reed, Tom Waits) all play on it. And while you're at it, why not cover Johnny Thunders' "You Can't Put Your Arms Round a Memory" for good measure? You wanted to get the attention of your humble reviewer; you got it! And Danbury, CT's Guillorn doesn't squander it. This is one of those quiet, twinkling little pop records (they call it "interior rock," and hey, that's not bad!) where nothing is in any particular hurry. Bright, fuzzy, light, airy, and even a little cheery (but not too much so), this is a record made by someone who no doubt appreciates Nico's solo LPs and the very idea of Moe Tucker as much as the rest of us. But she also knows how to translate that into her own pretty pop, like the beguiling "Throne." The more country-inflected tunes don't work as well, even with their lyrics of "legendary cowboys," but with little organ moods and minor percussion always kept spare and the vocals always coming warmly from that sparkling background, you feel like you're in the middle of a snow globe. And the more strummy pop like "Impossible" is just plain strong. Very nice.

Avant-folkie Lys Guillorn (Liss Guh-LORN) released a self-titled effort in Spring 2003 on the Connecticut indie Little Cowgirl.

For her solo bow, the songwriter played most of the instruments, including guitars, organ, bells, and melodica. She also collaborated with producer Jeff Fuerzeig, who reached out to pals like Stanley Demeski and Brenda Sauter of the Feelies and Luna/Galaxie...
