Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

Three heavy hitters of girl angst have records out today…

Martha Wainwright releases I Know You're Married, But I Have Feelings Too. I mean, the title kinda says it all, doesn't it? It doesn't say that she is indeed the best Wainwright as far as I am concerned, but now you know.

Haley Bonar is criminally underappreciated in my book. She along with Mary Lou Lord, defined strong feminist voices in a period kinda bereft of feminism and she continues to make really solid records. Today she releases Big Star, and not too long from now, she will be in town supporting Hayden at his June 24th gig at The Tractor — a show I HIGHLY recommend.

Alanis Morissette. I don't think anyone can truly argue the brilliance of Jagged Little Pill, and I am hoping that this new record Flavors Of Entanglement will be a return to form. Fueled by her recent breakup with super hot Ryan Reynolds, I am sure it's at least a little bit bitter.

Fortunately for you I already ranted about Emmylou Harris earlier this week in a post about giving away a guitar signed by her magesty here, so I'll let it rest…
