SIXPENCE NONE THE RICHER
Sixpence Hone The Richer
"Kiss Me," the albums first single, is a striking pop
gem which celebrates the whimsical spirit of
romance. Leigh's disarming voice floats over Matt's
articulate, emotive guitar arrangements, ascending
and descending like an uncertain angel. Suddenly,
you realize you've already listened to the third song
on the album, unaware that the first two had ever
ended. It's okay. Relax. That's how it's meant to be.
NEW AMERICAN SHAME
New American Shame
From the Pacific Northwest come the 100% pure hard
rock of new American Shame. On their eponymous
debut they take the metallic K0 of such inspirations as
AC/DC, classic killer Queen, and the first four Van Helen
LPs ond filter it through an extreme modern sensibility.
The result? Some of the most full-on, in-yer-face power
rock 'n' roll in eons.

Gordon's benign intent: the bond's sound is upbeat,
brilliantly textured • a neo-psychedelic walkf-sound.

of the smartest and most uplifting pop around. In

Songs About Cowgirls
On their sophomore album, the San Francisco trio make
no bones about their love for thundering guitars. With a
cleaner, fuller-sounding, and altogether more monstrous
piece of work; singer and guitarist Josh Zee recalls, "We
were just going to do this record like we did the last one,
basically guitar, bass ond drums." But they decided to
put organ, a banjo and trumpet on the tracks and it
sounds really amazing.
MAC Y GRAY
On How Life Is
The voice of Mocy Gray is o wondrous thing. It con
be as intimate as the wee hours or as exciting os a
packed nightclub; disarmingly sweet or harsh and
raspy. The obvious comparison is Bilie Holiday, but
there are traces of others both legendary and little
known; Abbey Lincoln, Nina Simone, Tina Turner.
Yet, in the end Macy sings like no one but herself.
The self-titled debut album is a hip mix of pop and
soul, pushing the concept of girl groups into the
new millennium. This super-trio is here to show you
what girls are really made of, these ladies are
musically advanced, openly opinionated, and
fashionable. Featuring the pop ultra-smash 'I Do,"
and a heartfelt version of the Cyndi Louper hit
"Time After Time," among others.
