In the oversaturated marketplace that is the music industry, true originals can sometimes get lost in the crowd. Be glad Dolly isn’t slipping past your attention. Dolly's songs are treasure troves of uncommon instruments and complicated arrangements. As a composer, her intellect is undeniable, but her real talent is her ability to make fun, frisky music out of the strangest of bedfellows. Like “Wind At My Back,” where a theremin, a baritone guitar, a computer and some woodwinds join together in a percussive romp that’s part surf music, part tango, part Goldfrapp. “Bang Bang,” with its tambourine shambles, electronic bleeps and ropy guitars, is garage rock go-go for the 21st century. On the subversive “Ghetto Blaster,” Dolly lends her velvety, feline alto (similar to fellow Canadian Emily Haines) to an ode to the redemptive powers of the boom box. “Take a pill, it’s only a song,” she teases. Yeah, but what a song it is.

Thanks Kate!!
